gnome-settings-daemon crash details

problems with Gnome: after trying to change my icon theme from within an Xgl(Beryl) session, gnome-settings-daemon crashed. Now will not start on Gnome startup.

gdb trace (from a failsafe session) gives:

(no debugging symbols found)
[New Thread -1228379232 (LWP 7074)]

EDIT: fixed now. problem was due to me being a retard and installing the redhat-artwork RPM using alien so that I could use the bluecurve icon set. simply removed the package and extracted the cons manually from the rpm and stuck them in home/shrimphead/.icons works fine now.
