This has actually nothing to do with the metacity issue.

Offering a backtrace by default when people usually have stripped
binaries is kind of pointless. I wonder if the bug-buddy maintainers
will ever add an explanation about this.

Please have a look at the many related threads in the list
archive. You'll also find the URLs for the corresponding reports in
bugzilla.gnome.org. The theme manager _is_ buggy. Definitely. Until
_upstream_ releases a fixed version, this bug will remain.

It might help to dramatically reduce the number of themes
installed. (I actually had tons of old GTK 1.2 and metacity themes
lying around that I never use). Furthermore you might try renaming
your ~/.themes directory. If you have the gnome-themes package
installed you can safely remove it unless you need the accessability
themes it contains.
