Segmentation fault, I can't execute many programs

Hi!, I installed Fedora Core and I decided to uninstall evolution. Later I
installed again Evolution and when it was finishing the installation, I saw
the next errors on screen:

/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.65691: line 6: 5881 segmentation fault gconftool-2
--makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/$S >/dev/null
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.65691: line 6: 5882 segmentation fault gconftool-2
--makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/$S >/dev/null
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.65691: line 6: 5883 segmentation fault gconftool-2
--makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/$S >/dev/null
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.65691: line 6: 5884 segmentation fault gconftool-2
--makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/$S >/dev/null
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.65691: line 6: 5885 segmentation fault gconftool-2
--makefile-install-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/$S >/dev/null

All was working good before this happened and when I tried to execute
gdmsetup, it produced a segmentation fault. This happens too when I try to
execute any redhat configuration tool.
Could you help me with this and explain me why happen this?

I have ran into that with Mandrake 9.1. Reboot usually fixed it. I never did get a answer as to what caused it.

Does tick me off though.

No I didn't upgrade any important library, I'm sure of it, but I have solved the problem. I've reinstalled gtk2 and libbonobo* libraries and now all the programs works fine
