Hmm, we need debug symbols to properly test this (and run it with gdb
- which might already be helpful even without debug symbols). Also,
strace -r would probably produce some useful information.
I will search the bug reports. Maybe packaging 3.10.2 might already
help (it's a minor release and minor effort to do). We are linking new
GNOME components, like gsd, against a few older ones - but I don't
think that this caused the problem here.
