Panel segfaults at startup (ORBit problem?)


Up until a couple of days ago I had a nicely working Gnome system from
CVS.  Since I recompiled ORBit, gnome-libs and gnome-core from the
latest CVS sources (ORBit 0.5.1, gnome-libs 1.0.56 from the stable CVS
branch, gnome-core 1.1.5cvs) I have had the panel segfaulting when I
start Gnome.  gnome-session keeps trying to reload it and it keeps
crashing until I kill the X server.  Running the panel separately in
gdb and doing a backtrace when it crashes gives me this:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I have tried various combinations of different CVS versions and the
"stable" ORBit 0.5.1 tarball; nothing seems to work (I could downgrade
to stable tarballs for everything I guess, but I don't want to lose
gnome-core 1.1 functionality, especially as it was working before).

Some other system details, which haven't changed since before Gnome
stopped working:

- Red Hat 6.0
- Linux kernel version 2.2.15
- glibc 2.1.1
- XFree86 3.3.3

Does anyone know what's wrong and/or how to fix it?  If you need more
information or if this is the wrong forum, please let me know.
