My GTK apps (mainly firefox, midori, and evolution, but not thunderbird
or pidgin) are constantly crashing, I believe after the gtk+ update, but
perhaps another change.
I know others have seen this, one fixed it by changing what font was
being used (changed default font for an app from Arial to something
else), but this person has no issues with firefox.
Anyone found a cause for this?
