Ouch, this is nasty.  When running Gnome the new GTK file dialog uses
gnome-vfs as a backend, and gnome-vfs creates some threads. But malloc in Emacs can't handle different threads so we crash. One workaround is to set the use-old-gtk-file-dialog variable to t (it looks quite nice on
Debian testing).

I can confirm that the workaround works, thanks.  It bring back the
old file selection dialog that I'm used to, which I even prefer.  Btw,
shouldn't that variable be customizable?

I think I fixed this now, but as I did not get a crash with your test case, I can not really confirm it is fixed. If you have time, can you retry a newer Emacs from CVS with the new file dialog, and see if it crashes? That would help a lot.
