Latest Gedit no longer works and crashes

Hello Jasper,

I just installed gedit to try this myself. But it works out of the box
for me. I even disabled my ~/.gtkrc-2.0 to rule out any configuration

I get the same warnings as you at startup, but that is common for Gtk+
based programs and should not be a problem:


$ gedit
Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display

** (gedit:99784): WARNING **: Could not load theme icon gtk-home: Icon
'gtk-home' not present in theme

(gedit:99784): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion
`G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

** (gedit:99784): WARNING **: Could not load theme icon
system-file-manager: Icon 'system-file-manager' not present in theme


Apparently the icon can be found somewhere on my system finally. If this
is really related to the "system-file-manager" icon, the only files I
have with this name would be in the directories

But gedit even works for me if I deactivate the gnome-icon-theme port,
which provides these icons.

I am a bit lost here and don't know how to help you further...
