Oh good, it's not just me who has that.

It's a crash inside GTK+, when it is inspecting the size of the new
screen.  It is querying the size of the screen via Xinerama, so it is
possible that the new fake-Xinerama support in xrandr 1.2 is broken.
However, when I tried to investigate this with a debuggable GTK+, it
stopped crashing. :/
