Just getting a new F11 x86_64 machine going, and every time I try to

It crashes at:
and doing some googling, I found an old (c. 2006) FreeBSD discussion
about this, and then it was isolated to folks using KDE and the
not being set to include gnome. So, I added '/usr/share/gnome' to the
end of it, and voila, no more crashes.
The claim at the time was that KDE was duplicating one of the path
entries instead of adding gnome.
So, I have a fix/workaround in hand, but this should probably be fixed
more globally. I have no idea what to file a bug on, though, or where
this should get set. Or perhaps there's some package that should have
been installed but wasn't?
I don't have this problem on i386, though that's on different hardware.
This is a xulrunner/thunderbird bug, if anything. KDE's use of
XDG_DATA_DIRS is correct.
