Thanks, I pre-empted that by rigging the seahorse build so that it built 
with -g -O0, and copied the non-stripped seahorse-agent binary into 
/usr/local/bin for my submitted backtrace. Amazingly enough, it turns 
out that even if you specify --enable-debug on the configure line, the 
installation step still decided to strip the binaries after 
installation. nice.

Anyhow, there is hopefully enough info in there for them to figure out 
what's up (my guess is that the missing cast is the likely culprit, as 
it caused similar misbehavior in evolution some time back).
