Public bug report changed:

I can confirm Michael Herrmann's post. On both my laptop (clean Breezy
install) and my desktop (also Breezy), gnome-nettool always instantly
segfaults, regardless whether it is called from the gnome menu or the
command line. The latter yields:

root at samarqand:~ # gnome-nettool
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (out): 0x08297000 ***

On both machines I have a running kernel module for a WLAN USB stick (ftp://ftp.avm.de/cardware/fritzwlanusb.stick/linux/suse.10.0/fwlanusb-suse10.0-0.09.00-beta.tar.gz) 
which is betaware and may well be the cause of the problem. Indeed I don't think the issue showed up before the WLAN was set up.
