I just noticed that this bug seems to be related to the position of the triangle
on the outer color ring of the custom widget in the GTK+ color picker. If the
triangle is rotated to certain positions, it causes the crash.

To demonstrate, I ran gnome-background-properties from gdb, selected Horizontal
Gradient from the Desktop Colors dropdown list and clicked the right-most color
picker button (currently set to gray).

The GTK+ color picker widget is displayed as normal. However, if I click on any
point of the outer color ring that surrounds the triangle, gdb gives me this
error and gnome-background-properties crashes:

Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.
