This used to happen in edgy as well with only 128M of RAM, is that your case by any chance?

I am not sure, there was a surge in crasher bug reports in the past week, which I hope is
helped by the latest upload of libxfce4util two days ago. People reporting crashes today
can still be a few days behind latest so it will take a while to know whether that package really fixes
many of the fce4-session and xfdekstop4 crashers

It would make sense if it's because of limited memory, even though it's a shame to have regressed from dapper
in that regard :( . The trash plugin and system-tools-backends are two apps which I think are there and were not
before. I'll wait to see if you indeed have 128M before going too deep into this.
