The pain of being on unstable

For the last week or more most of my applications were/have been crashing for apparently no reason. You name it, it was crashing firefox, abiword, leafpad, oowriter. I had been investigating the issue for few days now, and there had been something which comes on the CLI which had me rankling, the same issue & I didn’t know what it might be. Something like this (for e.g.)

(leafpad:2793): GLib-GObject-

CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)’ failed
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Finally while surfing came to know about libgio library or atleast the transition to it, the part where nautilus has transitioned to it while the rest of the desktop hasn’t. So it might be one of those things. Of course would have to report application-wise assertion so they know what needs to be fixed. If one wants to know about libgio please go here
