I was able to reproduce this by launching lots of gnome-help instances,
exhausting all of my machine's memory, observing various processes being
killed, killall gnome-help, manually closing/cancelling various bugbuddy
windows, and then observing that I can't run gnome programs.

In pstree:

  +-update-notifier---gnome_segv2---sh---bug-buddy

attached gdb to the update-notifier process, attached gdb bt and
registers.

** Attachment added: "gdb bt and registers of crashed update-notifier process"
