Hi Aaron,

Hope this helps you. Perhaps you already think about this, but...
Try to set the DISPLAY variable before.

If I don't set it before, I have the same output:

#zenmap
Segmentation fault

But after I set It, it works like a charm:

Hm, thanks for the report.  Zenmap should give a proper error in that
case, not segfault.  When I unset my display, I get a much more useful
exception:

RuntimeError: could not open display

If anyone else gets the segmentation fault result described above and
can find a fix, I'd be happy to integrate it.

Cheers,
-F
