Additional Information:
[aiv@dhcp0010 ~]$ gnome-panel

[aiv@dhcp0010 ~]$ bg
[aiv@dhcp0010 ~]$ The program 'gnome-panel' received an X Window System
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadGC (invalid GC parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 7224 error_code 13 request_code 62 minor_code 0)
  (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()

Thanks for the bug report. Without a stack trace from the crash it's very hard
to determine what caused the crash. Please see for more information about getting
a useful stack trace.

Also, can you post the file names of the multiple images that you selected.  I
want to rule out this being a duplicate of bug 135089.

I'm not able to duplicate the crash in 2.8, but that doesn't mean the bug
doesn't still exist.

I'm changing the status to NEEDINFO.  If you can get a stack trace to us we can
look at this bug again.
