Yep, maybe you are on to something. I rebuilt seamonkey and
gnome-extra/evolution-data-server and still it croaks.
I rebuild 'system' tonight and see if that helps. I have not
sync'd and updated in 5 days, so I do that too. Let you know
what I find. Since I run kde, it must be deep below the gnome
or kde level.....?
Here are my seamonkey flags:
alsa chatzilla composer crypt cups dbus java ldap mailclient roaming
startup-notification -custom-optimization -gnome -system-sqlite

What X graphic card driver are you using? I ran into a similar issue
with ati-drivers (>=10.6) where AMD has introduced a new 2D acceleration
infrastructure (inherited from Windows); this doesn't work so good (at
least not for me and others) so I disabled it with 'aticonfig
--set-pcs-str=DDX,ForceXAA,TRUE' (as root of course, since this changes
a ati config file in /etc).
