OK, I have run the debug as you requested.  After the screen became unresponsive requiring a force quit, (gdb) produced the following:
Program exited normally.
(gdb) Quit
(gdb) thread apply all bt

Here is the output of the entire session in the terminal window:

 The warning about the DBUS connection is something I always see when running nautilus in sudo mode.  It was there in Dapper also.  It did not start with this problem.
