I think this is my bug; I closed Firefox, and got this error. I just got similar crash report when I closed Thunderbird (3.0). So far as I can tell, there is no loss of functionality, only the error. message when I closed the application.
Lucid x86_64.

What is the theme that you are running?

What's interesting here is the following:

#12 0x0108e364 in MOZ_gdk_display_close (display=0xb7664140)
    at nsAppRunner.cpp:2585
 theme_is_qt = 0
 settings = <value optimized out>
 theme_name = (gchar *) 0xa38150e0 "\001\002�"

Something is corrupting the theme_name.

The lines that get the theme_name:

  GtkSettings* settings =
  gchar *theme_name;
  g_object_get(settings, "gtk-theme-name", &theme_name, NULL);

Very odd!
