[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#359206: xfce4-panel: xfce4 panel crashes due to a free() of an invalid pointer

Package: xfce4-panel
Version: 4.2.3-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I'm using sid.
I verified this bug after the last upgrade of the libc6 package.
xfce4-panel lasts about one hour before crashing with the following
error (memory address changes from time to time):

*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x083017a8 ***

I tried to remove the plug-ins one by one, just to determine if the it's
xfce4-panel itself to crash or one of the plugins, but the remove
operation causes xfce4-panel to crash.
