System: R5 2600X / 16 GB RAM / GTX 1080 / SSD / 1440p 144Hz display

Problem occurs on both Xorg and Wayland sessions.

Can't reproduce it on my system (i5-5200U).

Maybe a partial system update related issue?
Comment by Calin Dan (calindan2013) - Saturday, 26 January 2019, 12:05 GMT
no. I tried reinstalling all system packages including gnome using instructions from Arch Wiki Pacman Tips and Tricks, i rebooted and its exactly the same.

nothing to do with that, none of those things are happening to me. its just simply a segfault of control center.

Try to rollback gtk3 to 3.24.3 and see if it fixes segfaults.
Comment by Calin Dan (calindan2013) - Saturday, 26 January 2019, 16:19 GMT
install via pacman?

Downgraded but problem still persists.

If the issue is still present with gtk3 3.24.4+15+g80b5024239-1 please rebuild glib2 (and possibly gtk3) with debug symbols and provide and updated backtrace.
