Exactly what versions of libbonobo[ui] do you have installed?

Looks like a race to free an object.  I've seen this before in

Yep.  It would be better to make sure we free what we malloc, and only
do so once.  The crash only occurs on -CURRENT due to extra malloc
debugging.  Doing:

# ln -s aj /etc/malloc.conf

Will most likely prevent the bus error.

I'll take a look, but I first need to know the exact version of all your
installed ports.
