several people can reproduce this bug. F.ex by starting up gwibber-accounts and trying to add a new twitter account. Or by using the ubiquity installer.

I think this might be a dupe. CCing Xan who should definitely know.

The trace is different, but it definitely looks like bug 42756. To double check enable overcommit and see if it stops happening (echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/overcommit).
Comment 3 jens.timmerman 2011-02-03 12:23:57 PST
echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory
does fix the problem!
