Public bug reported:

Affects: gnome-utils (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

There is an error at early startup with gnome-system-log. The gnome
"crashed" dialog does not come up, it just hangs. Running from the
terminal I get this output.

pete at petebox:~$ gnome-system-log -V

pete at petebox:~$ gnome-system-log
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x0811c2e0 ***

Tried to run it under gdm, but the symbols are stripped, I can only see
the top 6 functions starting with a g_free().
