Looks like the heap is corrupt.
To reproduce: upgrade a 6.1 GNOME workstation (this bug doesn't happen on
clean installation of 6.2).
Could you try the gnome-libs-1.0.55-1 package that is in the 6.2 tree now, and
see if that helps?
This is a well-known bug, but I'm not sure if the fix was in gnome-libs 1.0.55
or if this problem still exists. Please advise.
That seems to work fine.
