Hum, right ... I didn't reproduce it on that theme transition
but after launching the Themes Preference selectors and switching
a dozen times I got the applet crash too:

I don't understand why the stack trace stops at level #6,
but the bug seems to happen in gtk. It may be related to the
python bindings but I can't really find where it crashes there
without the full stack trace.
I can't reproduce this with gtk2-2.4.0-1 and rhn-applet-2.1.7-1.1.
What I do notice though is that the rhn-applet is the slowest part of
the desktop to pick up the new theme...
