This may be a big shot in the dark, but this looks suspiciously like a
bt I saw on FreeBSD -CURRENT recently.  The problem here was changes in
the OS's compiler and toolchain.  I had to upgrade _all_ my ports
(especially ORBit) to get Evo working again.  I'm not sure if OpenBSD
had similar changes, but if you haven't rebuilt some of the less
frequently Chaning GNOME 1.4 bits, you might give it a try, and see if
that helps.
