I've just trying to use recordmydesktop ( version - latest ) shipped out with the bt5 r3.

The funny part is once I'm trying to use it an "Segmentation fault" error is displayed:

"recordmydesktop --windowid=0x1000003 --dummy-cursor=black --no-sound --on-the-fly-encoding --workdir=/home/-o out.ogv
Initial recording window is set to:
X:1366 Y:1025 Width:1680 Height:25
Adjusted recording window is set to:
X:1366 Y:1016 Width:1680 Height:32
Your window manager appears to be Metacity

Output file: out.ogv
Segmentation fault

I've thought to install the gtk-recordmydesktop Debian package but when I'm pulling the package under the dpkg command another fun is revealed:

dpkg -i gtk-recordmydesktop_0.3.8-4.1_all.deb

Since I can't in a fashion and clean way to upgrade the python version to the latest 2.7.3 is there other possibility to get this recordmydesktop working?
