pidgin output and emrge --info
reopened the bug :-)
Those are not in pidgin, but in msn-pecan.
My advice is to use the built-in msn plugin, not pecan.
Thanks for the report, can you recompile pidgin-msn-pecan (and maybe pidgin too) with debug informations enabled?
Also upstream suggests to run pidgin as:
# pidgin --debug > debug_log.txt
This will help them track the problem. At first glance, I've not seen any recent commit that could fix your crash, and it works fine here so I cannot reproduce
pidgin-msn-pecan-0.0.19 is in tree and fixes a few crashes, please test it. The announcement (and list of fixed items) is here:
Please reopen if it is not fixed in this release
