Actually I forget the most important point, after the application
crashes, type “bt” in gdb to actually get the backtrace :s

Myeah.  So the most plausible reason is a broken theme.  So lets start

Do you have a ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file?  What is its contents?

What GTK+ theme are you using?  Check in Settings > User Interface.

What icon theme are you using?  Settings > User Interface.

What Xfwm4 theme are you using?  Settings > Window Manager.

What mouse cursor theme are you using?  Settings > Mouse.

I think that's all for the themes.  Please join the files
~/.config/xfce4/mcs_settings/xfwm4.xml and
