Please run gedit in a terminal (eg. gnome-terminal) and attach the output.
Also if you have ABRT installed, you could use it to report the crash, it'll help you generate a proper backtrace.

Comment 2 Volans 2011-05-15 16:30:08 EDT

I did what you asked, here is the result. Unfortunately, I ABRT isn't working correctly also, so I can't send any error report. Tell me how to manually get the core dump and I'll see what I can do.

Here is the text shown in the console:

[Volans@localhost ~]$ gedit

(gedit:1852): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: specified class size for type `PeasExtensionC' is smaller than the parent type's `PeasExtension' class size

Installed Fedora 15 Final and gedit is working again. So this big is solved.
