What about statusbar applets?

I had recently updated my other device to latest Diablo and happened
just to install Statusbar load-applet (haven't used that earlier) to
it and after using it for a while, Desktop crashed.  I haven't gotten
any Desktop crashes without load-applet.

The backtrace looks like this:
Signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
0 	0x4097013c 	IA__gdk_pixbuf_fill (pixbuf=0x786f4274, pixel=0) at 
1 	0x42fa0350 	?? () from unknown

And when looking at the load-applet code in Garage, it's at least using
that function, so it might explain some crashes:
