We had several of this kind of crashes that happen when you remove and
add it back. Usually the problem was in the Glib types that the applet
uses: if it tries to register new types that are already there, or
something similar.  I guess Glib should print out some warnings for you?
(notice that hildon-home probably closes stdout by default)

It could help to disable all other plugins than the one that you are
debugging and using gdb or good old printfs I guess.
