I attached the backtrace. It is not too helpful, but I was able to
narrow it down to line 372 in gpk-application.c:

repo_name = (const gchar *) g_hash_table_lookup
(application->priv->repos, ident->data);

Which is reasonable, since ident->data is NULL and doing a hash tabel
lookup on NULL will result in a segmentation fault.

Ah, nice, there is documentation. :-) Thanks for pointing me that out.
