Yeah, the backtrace is useless indeed. It'd help if you could install
all the relevant -dbg packages. xfce4-session-dbg doesn't exist so if
you can rebuild it it'd help. I might be able to provide you an
unstriped package but not right now.

It looks fine at first sight. I've tried it (but on 4.8) and it didn't
crash. I'll try it on squeeze and check.

All in all, it doesn't look RC to me since it's doesn't seem to be
really reproducible easily (by selecting the balou theme on squeeze and
sid, at least)
