So the best would be to run either of the two apps from the debugger:

1) Launch an xterm
2) kill the task bar (with "killall xftaskbar4", "xkill", whatever)
3) Run xftaskbar4 through gdb. From the terminal, type:
   gdb /usr/bin/xftaskbar4
(you may have to adjust the path to the actual location of xftaskbar4 on
your system)
4) Iconify the terminal (while keepint it running) and work as usual
until the problem occurs
5) When it occurs, restore the terminal and type "bt" (for backtrace)
from the gdb prompt
6) Post the results
