The propble is not new
Please check:    

Ii.e.. Search the ROOT Web site
with "Use Google" for "bad access 88"  

What is new for me is the (new eXceed + new ROOT). I'll try to check several ROOT versions to see whether to makes any difference.

	Hi Tobias,
	The reported error code (XREQ: 88) is related to the FreeColors. We made
	tests on 2.4.21-32.0.1.EL.cernsmp and did not see the problem. Please
	provide in more details which steps you follow for reproducing the
	reported case.
	Thank you, Ilka
