Package: libgcrypt20
Version: 1.7.6-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Today June 5th of 2017 a library update was pushed into stretch, it seems
that libgcrypt20 is a core part for running some gnome-based desktops, after
the update caja, nautilus & nemo applications stop responding after init, the
superuser can start and use them flawlessly but when a normal user tries to
open a window to work it stops responding, not just the window but the entire
caja process freezes, I've reproduced this in my main laptop and 2 other 
computers running Debian Stretch & MATE 1.16 just upgrade those 2 libraries to
see the effects.
