How to report bugs
Bugs should be reported to the GNOME bug tracking system.

You can also report bugs using the GNOME program bug-buddy.
In the bug report please include:
* Information about your system. For instance:
- What operating system and version
- What version of X
- What version of the gtk+, glib and gnome libraries
- For Linux, what version of the C library
And anything else you think is relevant.
* How to reproduce the bug.
* If the bug was a crash, the exact text that was printed out when the
crash occured.
* Further information such as stack traces may be useful, but is not

it will be more useful if the stacktrace is produced running the test
program with the --sync command line option.
