Accessibility Zoom crashes when Cinnamon restarted / Gedit run / USB flash drive inserted

Bug Description

Version: Linux Mint 13 w/Cinnamon 2.0 backport

1) Restarting Cinnamon with the desktop zoomed will ALWAYS crash the zoom function, resulting in a normal sized desktop and no zoom until a reboot.

2) Starting Gedit with zoom enabled more often than not crashes zoom, resulting in a regular sized desktop and no zoom functionality. A reboot restores the zoom function.

3) On occasion, inserting a USB flash drive with zoom enabled will freeze the system video. An ACPI shutdown may (but not always) shut the system down cleanly.

Please help - this s making the OS very difficult to use as I'm visually impaired.

Folks, this is really badly broken and is happening several times a day. It's making the OS unusable for me. Please look at this!
