The update seems to have fixed #1665740 but I am experiencing #1665521 and getting GLIB_CRITICAL errors in the journal after applying the patch.

With abrt-2.12.0 I still have random directories created in my home directory. The bug is still not fixed. I removed abrt-applet but the weird directories still appear. Inside the weird directory there's a ".cache" subdirectory. Inside the ".cache" subdirectory there's a empty xsession-errors.

Tried removing abrt altogether (with lots of dependencies, yes) and still getting weir directories created at login time. It looks like it's not abrt fault (or not only abrt fault). Somewhere there's a concrete error.

You may want to use auditctl to watch for "mkdir" system calls - set it up from text mode prior to logging in , then log in, finally check audit results.
