  gnome-settings-daemon dies with BadMatch

Status in “gnome-desktop” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-settings-daemon

  g-s-d frequently dies for me when I'm flipping through display output

  The program 'gnome-settings-daemon' received an X Window System error.
  This probably reflects a bug in the program.
  The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
    (Details: serial 172881 error_code 8 request_code 149 minor_code 7)
    (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
     that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
     To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
     option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
     backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

  This is the first time I happened to have launched it from console
  (restarting it after a previous crash) and caught this error message.
  I'll try to debug it using --sync.
