    I checked on both F29 "updates" and "updates-testing" repos and did not find these yet. I think the key word here is "pending". But I did check on the koji build server and see that the builds are complete. So I created a new directory in my $HOME and used "wget -q" to download each of the abrt packages that I have installed (17 of them). Then "dnf upgrade" on those packages.
    Code:
    $ sudo dnf upgrade *-2.11.1-3.fc29.x86_64.rpm

    Since they don't seem to have hit the repos yet, I guess I'll be the first to test this (abrt-applet being the problem component which is installed by the abrt-gui package). Will report after a reboot.

    Edit: Reboot done and 2.11.1-3.fc29 appears to have fixed this issue.

    You're right, the key word is pending - only packages residing in stable and/or testing can be installed via dnf.
    Otherwise it has to be done the way you did it - thanks for having tested the packages and the information.

    I started to experience the same with KDE.
    At first I thought I did some wrong. But my 2nd KDE install experienced the same.

    I just completed some updates and tomorrow, I will recheck.

    Re: strange folders ''$'\020''{' in my home-folder

    I have posted the workaround and an update information on the Ask Fedora portal.
    https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/que...fix-it/#131936

    Update Information 2019-01-16 :

    Bugfix available : abrt-2.11.1-3.fc29 has been pushed to the Fedora Updates System.
    No new strange folders get created anymore - but to get rid of the journalctl message
    GLib-CRITICAL: g_child_watch_add_full: assertion 'pid > 0' failed - the link file still has to
    be deleted -> sudo rm /etc/xdg/autostart/org.freedesktop.problems.applet.desktop.
