It seems a GTK.Client crash:
Perhaps you can 
a) try to work with a default GTK theme
b) execute "xset fp" to clean up the list of font paths
c) or may check if your environment doesn't need an update.

Looking at this kind of error on the Web, I found some messages as:
"today, I updated Gnome 2.10 to 2.12. Now, the plucker-desktop don't work. I 
get the following errormessages:

Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  serial 339 error_code 8 request_code 144 minor_code 3
Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  serial 343 error_code 8 request_code 144 minor_code 3"
"Many Linux systems use a single X visual and colormap for all windows by 
default; IRIX doesn't. As a result there are a variety of bugs lurking in the 
source code where programmers have, for example, allocated colors in the 
wrong colormap or assumed that all windows have the same depth. Try making 
your default X server visual 24-bit TrueColor by adding "-depth 24 -class 
TrueColor" to /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers. (Run xdpyinfo first to make sure 
your server supports this visual, and be sure to restart the X server after 
making a change. Logging out may not be enough!"
