After poking about with valgrind I think this is a bug in gnome-vfs2-2.8.2-8 .
My attempts to pinpoint the exact spot using gdb weren't very successful though.

Valgrind reports an invalid read before this too.

this bug still happens when you run:

$ ggv http://www

from the command line
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2005-04-24 23:04:59 EDT
Doesn't seem to happen here anymore with gnome-vfs2-2.10.0-3, so only an FC-3 
(and possibly RHEL) issue.
Comment 4 petrosyan 2005-05-10 20:44:56 EDT
ggv has been removed from FC4
