Maybe you did not do anything, but the resolve-dependencies zypp helper
did something: It segfaulted.

This caused zmd.db to be left in an unusable state. Zen-Updater likes to
show exactly this stack trace whenever that happens. It's the most
well-known one. Use Google:

http://www.google.com/search?q=CheckUpdatesLoop

While the resolve-dependencies segfault has been fixed in the meantime,
the stack trace from Zen-Updater will _never_ be fixed. It's already in
Bugzilla with 6 duplicates. Resolution: WORKSFORME

Just forget it... Whenever this happens, you have to do:

killall zen-updater
/etc/init.d/novell-zmd stop
rm -f /var/lib/zmd/zmd.db
/etc/init.d/novell-zmd start
zen-updater &

Btw. this was a stack trace, not a backtrace. Backtraces are from the
C/C++ world...
