Hello and thank you for this bug report!

I confirm that I also have this bug with the development version of the dock and Ubuntu 12.10!
I'll have a look asap (but it's currently not possible with this old smartphone ;) )

It *seems* it's not due to Cairo-Dock because the code has not changed (we don't have this crash on Ubuntu Precise with the same version of Cairo-Dock).
It crashes after having called 'dbus_g_proxy_call' function (this function is called 3 times or more in a thread). Note that I don't have this crash if I use this function in the main loop.

I've just re-installed the previous version of DBus (1.4.18) and DBus-GLib (0.98) and I still have this crash :-/

This is the backtrace of the crash with the latest version of DBus (1.6.4) and DBus-GLib (0.100)

Ok, it seems `dbus_g_thread_init` was not called and is required because logout applet uses D-Bus functions in a thread (but it's strange to have this bug now and not before...)
This bug is now fixed on BZR¹

This bug was fixed in the package cairo-dock - 3.0.99.beta1-0ubuntu1

cairo-dock (3.0.99.beta1-0ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low

  * New upstream beta release.
  * Upstream ChangeLog (main changes):
   - Better integration of Unity: support of the Launcher API and better
      support of indicators
   - All configuration windows have been merged into a single one.
   - Added progress bars in several applets and in the Dbus API
   - The Music Player applet can control players in the systray.
   - Icons of the taskbar can be separated from launchers or not
   - And as always ... various bug fixes and improvements :-)
  * Fixed a few bugs reported on Launchpad:
   - A crash with logout applet (LP: #1033190)
   - Shortcuts do not accept Control key entries (LP: #1007539)
  * debian/custom_cairo-dock_badge.png, debian/source/include-binaries:
   - Added a badge for LightDM (LP: #987247)
  * debian/patches/cairo-dock-session_without_fallback_session.patch,
   - Only installed 'Cairo-Dock' session without Unity-2D and Metacity support
      due to the suppression of Unity-2D and the use of llvmpipe
   - Renamed 'Cairo-Dock (Gnome + Effects)' to 'Cairo-Dock (GNOME)'
  * debian/control:
   - Added a new suggested dependence for cairo-dock-core: gnome-session
   - Updated my email address
  * debian: Used 'wrap-and-sort' tool
