Contact your vendor, SuSE. I've not seen any problem reports with
"vanilla" builds, and on the other hand the kinds of problems that are
likely to arise that generate such symptoms are workstation
configuration details that your OS vendor should take care of. (That
is not to say that XEmacs couldn't have such a bug or handle the error
better, but the OS vendor is in a better position than we are to
distinguish between configuration issues and XEmacs bugs.)
For this problem, and for the closely related problem of XIM
initialization failing because of not finding a FontSet (which is a
bug that is present in XEmacs 21.5.27 and later), you can eliminate
all possibility of the error occurring by configuring XEmacs with your
usual flags, except for `--with-xim=no', then rebuilding (this is a
C-level issue, it's not possible to work around with Lisp).

XIM may also be used for multilingual input in general. The preferred
solution for most users of a *single* European language is to
reconfigure the keyboard, but if you need multiple foreign languages,
an input method (the IM in XIM) is useful. (You probably still don't
need it, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.)
