I have tested the latest nVidia drivers ( 340.32 ) on Linux and I can confirm that it does crash (same stack trace as alkis).

The problem is that the nVidia driver crashes as part of the nVidia OpenGL library initialization, *before* FS-UAE is even started...

I don't have any good explanation why it causes FS-UAE to crash and not all other OpenGL-using apps. One possibility is that the problem occurs only in specific circumstances (depending on library load order, size of executable, and/or something else).

Until the problem is resolved, one possible workaround I can do is to set __GL_WRITE_TEXT_SECTION=0 by Launcher/Arcade before starting FS-UAE (thanks for finding the workaround, alkis )
