I'll investigate but I'd add that I'm running KDE rather than Gnome. I'd 
not expect theming to get in the way in this case but I suppose that 
there is a possibility that gtk2 is looking for some sort of setup info 
that's missing and failing with no grace whatsoever.

Thinking about it, I'm pretty sure I see the same problem with Slackware 
12.1 on x86 so it's not Debian-specific.
