Thanks for report, could you get a backtrace with:

gdb gnome-terminal
(gdb) break gdk_x_error
(gdb) run --sync
reproduce the crash and
(gdb) thread apply all bt

and then attach the output to the report? please also make sure to install the gnome-terminal and libgtk2 dbgsym packages, thanks in advance.

Changed in gnome-terminal (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Incomplete

was a random crash. anyway i can help?

well we need the backtrace of the crash to be able to determine where the bug actually is and then pass that to the developers for fixing , without it there's no much we can do.

This crash happend exactly in the same moment as #629841.

Both happend when closing a half-working gnome-shell session (see #629828) by pressing Ctrl+C.
