Hm, I'm still seeing segfaults, now when *quitting* Galeon (but only in 
~10% of cases).

I would be glad for a way to run an application under gdb so that when 
it segfaults a "bt full" is spit automatically to a file I give, i.e. 
some "with-gdb-backtrace-to $file $app $arguments". Can't get that to 
run right now, and copy pasting from the console is tedious and I'm not 
sure it's even broken in some cases (by that builtin pager that I cannot 
seem to get switched off).


(tired. Maybe I'll continue to look into the problems soon)
