The problem is seen after an update to the latest librsvg release (2.46.5-3.3.1) and so far only on PowerPC.

Login through VNC viewer and access the "Show Applications" icon.
Gnome Desktop will crash and dump a core and the following message appears:
"Oh no! Something has gone wrong"

The core shows:

Core was generated by `/usr/bin/gnome-shell '.

The librsvg update released December 2021 (librsvg-2.46.5-3.6.1) includes the patch to resolve the problem.



A problem with the rust compiler was causing the problem. Recompiling the packages with rust-1.53.0-19.1 resolves the problem.
