Mathematica crash under Linux.

Hello everybody.

I have done the following (Mathematica 5.2 for Linux, Ubunty Edgy):

In Preferences, HelpBrowserSettings changed ShowCategories to False, 
pressed "Apply" and "Close". Then I opened Help Browser and clicked on
"Show Categories" - at that stage Mathematica crashes with the following
message:

Additionally, there seems to be another problem with Help Browser:
if (when ShowCategories is set to True) I press "Hide Categories" and
then "Show Categories" in the help browser, categories are blank, that
is: instead of showing the contents, like "Numerical Computation", 
"Algebraic Computation" etc. (when showing contents of "Built-in
Functions"), nothing is displayed.

Is it possible to solve those problems?
