What I think might be happening is that zim generates an error in a
signal handler and these are caught by the crash monitor, even if
these are not fatal for zim itself. Most likely these are exceptions
in the updating of the index tree widget.

If you want to know for sure try running "zim -D" and check for error
messages there.

Feel free to file bug reports in the launchpad tracker if you see any
error messages. In theory even non-fatal errors should never happen.
