A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
With 4.8 RC2, this stopped happening for me when I disabled checking for updates in Apper. Obviously this is not ideal and a proper fix appears to be on the way.

That's not good.. I wonder if it is possible to build a desktop which would be more robust and easier to debug, it's seems to be difficult to do..

Maybe this could help debugging?

It has already been built. It's called Xfce, and it has supported running panel plugins in separate processes since 2005.
As a bonus, you get a much faster desktop too.
