Description: The smooth engine assumes a certain pointer is not NULL when in fact it quite possibly is NULL. This causes xfce4-taskmanager to crash on my system. I am using the gtk2-smooth-engine package from the AUR which cuts out the gtk1 bits but even if xfce4-taskmanager safely renders for people who use the regular smooth theme package, this patch make libsmooth safer to use.
This task depends upon
