Package: xfce4-appfinder
Version: 4.8.0-3
Severity: normal

I notice that when I launch xfce4-appfinder it waits many seconds to shows up.
If I launch it in a terminal I can see these errors:

~$ xfce4-appfinder

** (xfce4-appfinder:25988): CRITICAL **: cr_parser_new_from_buf: assertion
`a_buf && a_len' failed

** (xfce4-appfinder:25988): CRITICAL **: cr_parser_set_sac_handler: assertion
`a_this' failed

(xfce4-appfinder:25988): librsvg-WARNING **: Error setting CSS SAC handler

** (xfce4-appfinder:25988): CRITICAL **: cr_parser_destroy: assertion `a_this
&& PRIVATE (a_this)' failed

I am on a fresh xfce 4.8 installation and the strange thing is that on another
machines (sid i386 xfce 4.8 and testing i386 xfce 4.8) there is no errors, but
I have the same error on other machines (Squeeze amd64 xfce 4.6, Sid i386 xfce

It really seems a random problem.

I add that I can see the same errors related to xfdesktop in my .xsession-
errors when I right click on the desktop and I have set to show application
menu icons in xfce destkop properties. Right click menu is very slow to shows
up too.

On a side note I can also say that I have the same errors with all the icon
theme that i tried, except for Faenza Icons (http://gnome-
look.org/content/show.php/Faenza?content=128143): despite the fact that with
Faenza I have no errors, by the way, right click  menu and xfce4-appfinder are
still slow.

Thank you very very much and sorry me for my bad English.

Best regards,

Marco Milone
