Bug Description

Binary package hint: gthumb

loaded gthumb 2.12.2 as a ppa from webupd8 (and also tried as a download from ubuntu software centre) into lucid 10.04.1. Gthumb fails to launch with the following output from terminal:

i'm using gthumb 2.13.1 on lucid 64 and get the same thing. It was working like 1-2 days ago so i know this is new.
i tried to go thru my synaptic history, but i installed so much in the last 2 days its ridiculous (i wouldn't know which to begin listing). But everything else (that i regularly use) is in good shape.

how can i trace this or get log files?

I removed gthumb and then reloaded using the webupd8 ppa with updates and my launch rate success went from 20% to > 90% so I can live with this for now.
