Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version. Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response.

Yup - still a bug - exactly as the OP describes. Continues to be a problem on 11.04/Natty for System Monitor 2.28.2 and searchmonkey 0.8.1

If System monitor is running, it exits if searchmonkey is started.

If searchmonkey is running, System Monitor starts and immediately exits.

It doesn't only affect Searchmonkey. I have the same problem when Nicotine+ is open. If you try to open the gnome-system-monitor it crashes immediately. I attached a stack trace for this.

Gnome-system-monitor fails to open by clicking on its icon on taskbar.

Oneiric i386 output:

oem@dub:~$ gnome-system-monitor
**
ERROR:proctable.cpp:134:void proctable_set_columns_order(GtkTreeView*, GSList*): assertion failed: (id >= 0 && id < NUM_COLUMNS)
Abandon
oem@dub:~$ sudo gnome-system-monitor
[sudo] password for oem:

** (gnome-system-monitor:3761): WARNING **: SELinux was found but is not enabled.

So would like this fix backported to Oneiric too.

Thanks, but unfortunately backports isn't really the path for bug fixes. This issue should be fixed in 11.10 by way of a Stable Release Update (SRU) instead.

When issuing sudo gnome-system-monitor, it works ok.

In my case, it crashes even when Thunderbird isn't running.

I don't understand why it doesn't crash in another PC, that has installed the same version of Ubuntu, with nearly the same apps installed.
