Strace  is  your  friend   here,   although   its   output   is   fairly 
imcomprehensible; it gives you a  list  of  syscalls  that  the  program 
makes. Have you tried starting Opera from an xterm to see if it  outputs 
any messages when it closes? Might be segfaulting or something similar.


x^n + y^n = z^n where n > 2: no solutions
I have a wonderful proof of this but I can't write it now because my
train is coming.
