XFCE4 Seg-Faulting immediately after startup OpenSuSE 11.1

I'm not sure why, but after installing XFCE from the SuSE 11.1 repo's, starting it up the first time, adding pidgin to auto-start and changing the location of a panel or two, every time I try to start XFCE it seg faults almost immediately after bringing up the desktop and sends me back to log in and pick a graphic session. Looking at the few log files I've managed to find anything relevant in, the error message really doesn't tell me anything other than it's a seg fault.

Jan 9 18:06:03 doomhammer kernel: xfce4-session[9276]: segfault at b707d528 ip b707d528 sp bfa2ca30 error 4 in passwd[b7084000+35000]

Is the line in question in the /var/log/messages files.

I've tried to uninstall and re-install XFCE in yast to no effect, I'm guessing there might be some left over config files that might be contributing to the continued segmentation faults?

Re: XFCE4 Seg-Faulting immediately after startup OpenSuSE 11.1

you can test if the following works:

$ mv .config/xfce4-session .config/xfce4-session-old
$ mv .config/xfce4 .config/xfce4-old

This will get you to a blank desktop with one panel with one unconfigured launcher.

However since SuSE does things different most of the time, the xfce4-session folder may be located elsewhere.
