 I suggest you use backports instead of mixing packages from stable and

 There was a segfault in the scrollkeeper-update which gnome-panel-data
 calls, this is simply a bug in scrollkeeper-update or more likely a
 library that it uses.

 There were tons of crashes in scrollkeeper-update which were really
 libxml2's fault.

 So the bug is fixed in later versions: there's nothing more we can do,
 as the stable release of Debian is deeply frozen and we only fix *very*
 important bugs.

 Would you have upgraded your whole distribution, this wouldn't have
 happened, so I think it is not a very important bug since only special
 configurations are concerned by this bug.

 I'm reassigning this bug to scrollkeeper and closing it.
