Looks like the upstream fix:

2007-01-30  Tim-Philipp Müller  <tim at centricular dot net>

        * src/totem-menu.c: (create_lang_actions):
          Don't let hash table take ownership of and free strings that it
          doesn't own (causes crashes in totem_sublang_update() when accessing
          already freed memory or trying to free it again); also fix up hash
          table usage so that it really detects equal language strings.
          (Closes: #402512)

I'll need to make a new release...

I patched up totem and it's like magic, things work again.. Tim is a regular
hero as always.
