The backtrace in that bug hints that a11y may be running a recursive
main loop inside gtk_widget_show(); I don't know if that's still true,
but if it is, imo turning on a11y would be unacceptable until it's
fixed. This is an inherently buggy and dangerous thing to do
*especially* in metacity but in every application really. It's a
Heisenbug extravaganza.

It's not like this is a new or unknown problem. See
for an early mention that google turned up.
