Ahem, forgot to look into the SMAPS data included into "rich-cores".

Yes, this crash is definitely in load-applet code as 0x42fa0350
address is where load-applet is loaded.

So, if you had load-applet running in Desktop before the crash,
you could install the Gtk libgtk2.0-0-dbg package, reproduce your
crash and check with Gdb[1] whether it shows something similar.

If yes, please complain to load-applet developers:
