Default libatk-bridge.so crashes on XIOError

I just went through the ABRT filed backtraces for metacity and found at
least 7 related to the GTK+ module libatk-bridge.so adding an atexit()
handler that calls XCloseDisplay().

This tends to cause nasty chains of:

X server dies
XIOErrorHandler is called (installed by GTK+/metacity)
Calls exit()
Calls libatk-bridge.so's atexit() handler
Calls XCloseDisplay()
XIOErrorHandler is called

And things get messed up with the reentrancy and the process segfaults
or aborts.

I think metacity may be particularly vulnerable to this crash, but at
least two of the crashes I saw were *not* Metacity but filed against
Metacity because of the problems that older versions of ABRT had with
confusing processes.

So, you may have some of these in your modules as well - if you see a
backtrace that has frames in it like:

#4 0x00007f95bd2bd41e in _XIOError (dpy=0x12a6960) at XlibInt.c:3138
#8 0x00007f95bd297c60 in XCloseDisplay (dpy=0x12a6960) at
ext = <value optimized out>
i = 1
#9 0x00007f95b38beda8 in ?? ()
from /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules/libatk-bridge.so

Then you can dup it on:
