Install libatk1.0-dbg libc6-dbg libdbus-glib-1-2-dbg libexo-0.3-0-dbg
libglib2.0-0-dbg libgtk2.0-0-dbg libxfce4util4-dbg gdb

Then run:
gdb xfce4-terminal


When it segfaults, run:

set logging on xfce4-terminal.txt
backtrace full

And mail us the xfce4-terminal.txt.

You may want to diff the config files (in .config). xfce4-terminal
doesn't use xfconf so you can limit yourself
to .config/Terminal/terminalrc.
