Let file manager handle the desktop (GNOME Tweak Tool). I have an ext4 partition mounted my default after booting (edited /etc/fstab) on /media/Data, so I get an icon of a hard drive in my desktop representing that partition. I only middle clicked (wheel click) the icon with the mouse.
I can reproduce this crash with any storage device icon, even an automatically mounted external device (SD card).
Please provide a backtrace of the crash: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StackTraces

Backtrace of the crash
Didn't provide a bracktrace because ABRT told me it was unusable... Anyway, as I said, I can reproduce the crash every time.
Hope it helps!

Yes, your backtrace is missing debug symbols as well. Please install appropriate -debuginfo packages, it shouldn't be a problem with Fedora 16.

Backtrace locally generated
Thought the "Retrace Server" would do that for me... Anyway, ABRT says this time: "The backtrace is incomplete, please make sure you provide de steps to reproduce.".
Steps to reproduce are easy, thankfully! ;-)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
