abrt 1.1.1 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: python /usr/lib/gdesklets/gdesklets-daemon
reason: Process /usr/bin/python was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 13 (Goddard)

Hmm, apparently python bug. I am going to assign to Dave if he can investigate the problem.
Thank you for reporting this bug.
How reproducible is this problem? If you run the program from a terminal, is an error message printed?
What is the output of running the following command?
rpm -q gtk2 libxcb
Looking at the backtrace, it looks like an assertion failed inside frame 3 of the program's single thread inside _XAllocID:
python: xcb_io.c:385: _XAllocID: Assertion `ret != inval_id
xcb is failing to allocate a graphic-rendering context for some reason, and that's why the process exits.
Reassigning component from "python" to "libxcb"; hopefully the libxcb maintainer will be able to figure this out further or reassign to a more appropriate component.
abrt backtrace doesn't tell me libX11 or libxcb versions, can't really help with this.
