After librsvg has been updated to 2.42.4, cairo-dock crashes on start up. A bug report at Launchpad exists with all relevant output: I reported the bug upstream (in the forums as advised on the cairo-dock website and later also by mailing to the devs) but it looks like cairo-dock is abandoned.

Steps to reproduce:

Install the latest updates, launch cairo-dock
This task depends upon

Further findings:

1. The bug appears on some machines but not on all: I have a Manjaro install where librsvg has been updated to .4 already and the bug doesn't appear.

2. The bug appears only if the plugins package cairo-dock-plug-ins is installed.

3. Rebuilding the core and plugins packages didn't solve the issue.

4. The first commit to librsvg causing this bug is Bisection log:

There currently does not appear to be a librsvg 2.24.5 release could be cherry picked until there is.

Looks like it takes a bit till the release is ready. In the mean time a workaround: Make sure that your configuration is not as described in

librsvg 2.42.5 landed in the repos so now there is nothing preventing this from getting closed. :)
