Buffer Overflow in Gnome-Panel?

I upgraded to Gnome 2.22 recently as it has gone stable in Gentoo's portage. One issue I encountered was that the panel would crash whenever I clicked on the clock applet. Investigating futher I checked my logs and found that it was crashing due to SSP. I never had this problem with previous versions of Gnome Panel. Anyhow I disabled SSP and it works fine now but I worry that a bug has been introduced into the latest stable release of the panel.
