  gnome apps won't start via remote desktop

Status in “gnome-colors” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 10.10

Apps that start fine on the console will not start when you connect via Remote Desktop.

Examples: gnome-terminal, "add or delete button" in users-admin

Unfortunately, no errors messages are shown (reminiscent of MS Windows) and there are no clues in files in /var/log.

I managed to start an xterm and then tried to run "gnome-terminal" from there.

Here's the error  message:
gnome-terminal: /build/buildd/cairo-1.10.0/src/cairo-image-surface.c:1294: _pixel_to_solid: Assertion `!"reached"' failed.
