Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-06-30 11:40:20 EDT
Testing this is a bit tricky.  It depends on the timing at login.  You basically login, go to workspace preferences.  If it crashes, then you've hit the bug.  If it doesn't, then you have to log out, log back in again and repeat.

Some people hit it every other login.  I've only hit it three times total in testing.
