Public bug report changed:

This is probably critical severity. once this theme is selected, theme-
manager crashes and refuses to restart. A lot of other stuff, including
Mozilla (useful for finding this bug), the file-browser won't start

The temporary workaround is to:

1. restart computer (really!)
2. do not log into gdm
3. on the console, log in
4. grep -rl "SphereCrystal ." in the .gconf directory
5. edit every one of those files, and replace any xml entries named "theme" that have "SphereCrystal" listed as "Human"
