I may be experiencing the same with galeon and evolution, it's usually a
matter of hours instead of minutes though.

This may be a harmless signal handled by the application, in which case
you should be able to continue with the gdb commands

handle SIG33 nostop (to avoid stopping execution on such signals)

You mean not like above, or not at all? If the latter (and they also
don't crash when run against libc6-dbg but outside of gdb), that might
indicate a compiler optimization issue...
