[Goodies-dev] Help for debugging a GIO issue with xfce4-screenshooter

I ported Xfce4 Screenshooter to use GIO to be able to save screenshots 
to remote locations. Unfortunately, the function to copy a screenshot to 
a remote location does not work: the copying does not even start and no 
error or warning is reported.

I created a testing code sample which uses the same code and I get a 
neasty segfault, gdb and core dump do no give be any helpful indication. 
I don't really understand why it segfaults here and not in Xfce4 
Screenshooter. It seems I'm not using g_file_copy_async correctly in 
both cases...

The code for the test is available here: 
http://pocentek.net/~jeromeg/code/test.c . The code in Xfce4 
Screenshooter is available in trunk.

If someone has an idea or a hint on what I'm doing wrong, he is more 
than welcome! Thanks in advance!
