Hi again,

Below is the 'bt full' you wanted. This is not the plugin used in the 
panel but running the .so. (which i get trying to compile it myself with 
-g for debugging symbols. And which is run by the make process which 
terminates there, because of a segfault (What sense does it make it to 
execute a .so? ))

As to when the plugin crashes in the panel: I add it to the panel and 
the icon (the menubutton) gets displayed. When I click it, the frame 
opens in which the menu should be displayed, the loading indicator 
rotates, 1-2-3 secs, and *poof* it's gone.

I suspect something about my old and probably unclean 
menufiles/.desktop-files/icons whatnot.. (It's a really old Debian, 
started off as woody and was never reinstalled. Just updated. I had all 
the kdes and all the gnomes. But the normal menu works.)
The traces I get seem not to support that suspicion (just a hunch).
