By, application in question, what do you mean? Looks like all the
running apps loose their X connection - does X crash or hang? Are any
other apps usable? What can you do before right clicking that works?
Is it only right clicking on the desktop that causes the crash?
On another note, you really should listen to this line in the log
_IceTransmkdir: Owner of /tmp/.ICE-unix should be set to root
Recent versions of X.org will not start if this isn't fixed (if I
recall correctly) for security reasons
