One time crashes have happened to me on several occasions. I narrowed 
down the times to be in sync with upgrading gnome packages. Several of 
my reports were closed due to not being able to replicate the failures.

Th packages that seem to help out the developer most are the stripped 
debugging codes which the debuginfo packages add in a separate package. 
The debuginfo package repos are not enabled by default. An example is
[updates-debuginfo] located in the fedora-updates.repo file. I usually 
enable the repo when I need the packages installed. Others seem to 
enable the repos with the enablerepo command and the name of the repo. I 
find editing the file and changing the zero to the one is easier to add, 
update and remove the debuginfo packages after the problem is fixed.
