Thanks a lot for reporting. This is importend, as otherwise the bug
will not get fixed :)

Is this a copy-and-paste from the terminal? Because there should be a
newline between "libglade-WARNING..." and "this should ..." 

I strongly suspect that the problem is releated to your
/root/.synaptic/synaptic.conf. There is a variable called
"TreeDisplayMode" that should be between 0-3. If it is out of this
bounds, there is trouble (if that is the case, I still don't know how
synaptic managed to corrupt this configfile though).

I need some more information to solve this problem: 
1. Can you please rename your /root/.synaptic directory and see if the
   problem is caused by a odd config-file?
2. If not, can you please do a gdb backtrace for me? To do this,
   start: "gdb synaptic" 
   then type "run" and wait until the program crashs/exits
   on that point please type in "backtrace" and send me the complette

Thanks, interessting to know. This might help finding the problem.

Thanks a lot. As I wrote above I need your help with gdb to spot the
exact location of the error.
