Happened to me when unplugging my HP Mini 1010 while the lid was still closed. Normally, I expect it to suspend when I do that.

Had this crash on a Lenovo T500. I had just unplugged (and plugged back in) with lid closed and screensaver on.

I stared at the stack trace, and my best theory right now is that it crashes in gpm_disks_register (GpmDisks *disks, guint timeout), when dbus_g_proxy_call(DriveSetAllSpindownTimeouts) fails but doesn't set error.

Right, in fact the stack trace is absolutely right.
