Thank you for your bug report. What did you do when the applet crashed? Did you realize that it actually crashed or did this happen when the panel was killed on logout? Can you reproduce this crash?
I am not too sure, but I guess it is related to the fact that I accidently connected my USB HDD with Mac OS extended (case-sensitive, journaled) formatted partition on it, it crashed nearly the whole machine.
I don't think that the applet is the culprit here and the backtrace is not very useful since it lacks many debug symbols. Nevertheless I have writen the author. Let's see what he thinks of this report.
After talking to upstream we agreed to close this bug. It is most likely not caused by the cpufire-applet, instead the crash of your machine caused a memory corruption that in turn crashed the applet.
