Had the same bug, and this thread helped point me in the right direction. I'm not sure if my response is appropriate, as I'm sure more than a handful of less technical users will find this thread (it's the first few hits for 'gparted crash' search results.) If not, I apologize in advance. I solved the issue by using git to pull the current version of gparted, and building it. From a stock Maverick desktop 64 bit, system, I ran (as root):

# aptitude install git gnome-common libglib2.0.dev uuid-dev libparted-dev libgtkmm-2.4-dev

Then changed to the /tmp directory, ran

# git clone git://git.gnome.org/gparted

# make

# make install
