Thanks for the detailed steps to reproduce. Unfortunately I can't reproduce
the problem following these steps.

Could you please insteall debug symbols[1] and reproduce the problem while
running under gdb and then get a backtrace[2] after the segmentation fault
has occured? That might help us track down what the problem is.

(Please also note that gnome-system-log is pretty much dead. It's been
replaced by "gnome-logs". The latter only reads from the journal though
so not a general text-logs reading application like gnome-system-log.)
