Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

In current lucid with all updates I can reproduce a segmentation fault in gnome-appearance-properties in the following way:

1) open "Appearance"
2) choose "Dust" theme
3) customize and choose "Human" icon theme
4) go back to main theme tab and choose "ambiance"

5) result: it crashes every single time
