Thanks for filing this bug report.

Looking at the backtrace, this looks like a C-level assertion failure inside GDK due to an error talking to the X server whilst handling tooltips (frames #0-#6).

Starting at the textual bottom of the backtrace and working back up the file:
Frames #56 - #51: /usr/bin/python starting up, running /usr/share/system-config-printer/applet.py
Frames #50 - #42: appears to be a Python call to gtk.main(), running the GTK main loop
Frames #41 - #38: a timeout has happened, calling back into Python code
Frames #37 - #33: appears to be a call to an instance method of a Monitor instance
Frames #32 - #30: appears to be a call to an instance method of a JobViewer instance
Frames #29 - #20: running various Python code, which appears to be making a nested call into gtk.main()
Frames #19 - #11: appears to be within the nested invocation of gtk.main()
Frames #10 - #8: code related to GTK's implementation of tooltips, leading to:
Frame #7: a call to XTranslateCoordinates
Frames #6 - #0: an XError appears to have resulted from the call to XTranslateCoordinates(), and the process aborts.

[Reassigning component from "python" to "system-config-printer" and editing the "Subject" line to be more descriptive]
