It might be a component (or library, something deep down
the dependency chain) using Glib.

Using Linux apps on FreeBSD teaches you to ignore this
kind of messages. :-)

It seems that ported Linux programs generate them all
the time, with a varying degree of "actual impact".
Just a short example (into which your error message
would fit just fine):

(gimp:3022): GLib-WARNING **: goption.c:2132: ignoring no-arg, optional-arg or filename flags (8) on option of type 0

(gimp:3022): Gimp-Display-CRITICAL **: render_image_tile_fault: assertion `tile[4] != NULL' failed
end from FAM server connection

(gimp:3022): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_icon_info_load_icon: assertion `icon_info != NULL' failed

(gimp:3022): Gimp-Display-CRITICAL **: render_image_tile_fault: assertion `tile[4] != NULL' failed

(gimp:3022): Gimp-Base-WARNING **: tile ref count balance: 20

However, program functionality (in this case: Gimp) doesn't
seem to be affected. I don't know what else to say... ;-)
