The gnome panel crashes are caused by the glibc update which is the main
subject of that thread. This xorg-x11-server-utils is a different and
perhaps not quite as severe issue as the one with glibc. This update
breaks xrdb, the binary it is supposed to fix. No other binaries are
affected, so it's the choice between a functional binary with a
moderately severe vulnerability or a non functional binary.
