Odd utf.c error...Any Worries?

Folks, can you help me with this.  I start my XFce4 with:

startxfce4 >& startxfce4.log

just so I can capture errors.  However, I noticed that I'm getting this
error quite a bit:

** (xfce-mcs-manager:2290): CRITICAL **: file utf8.c: line 34
(utf8_string_remove_controls): assertion `str != NULL' failed

often followed by the same error but with:

in various patterns.  I haven't caught what action causes it yet, but
I'm hoping someone here knows.  I haven't lost any functionality (that I
can see), so I'm not too worried, but I'd rather not have the message at

I am a theoretical chemist.  Fear me!
