file-roller always crashes

Bug Description

Version: 2.9.92-0ubuntu1

(I set this to critical because I'm unable to run the program at all. Please
tell me if I shouldn't have done that.)

File-roller always crashes when run (command-line and Nautilus extension). I get
the "The Application "file-roller" has quit unexpectedly. You can inform the
developers of what happened to help them fix it. Or you can restart the
application right now." dialog, but I only get two options: "Restart
Application" and "Close", so I tried following the instructions from to get a traceback.
However, I'm only able to get a traceback if I click "Restart Application", so
I'm not sure this traceback is actually useful. Could you provide instructions
on providing a better traceback if it isn't?

(that doesn't crash for everybody, the severity is not that high for the
distribution changing it)

do you have the issue if you move ~/.recently-used somewhere else ? Don't delete
it, it can be useful to track the bug if that's the issue.

.recently_used that crashes file-roller.

Gotcha on the severity.

Yes, moving .recently_used fixes the problem, thank you! I'm attaching the old
.recently_used so you can debug the cause.
