reopened the bug :-)
Comment 8 Olivier Crete (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-16 15:08:35 UTC
Those are not in pidgin, but in msn-pecan.

My advice is to use the built-in msn plugin, not pecan.
Comment 9 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2009-03-16 16:52:22 UTC
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
Comment 10 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2009-06-21 22:33:26 UTC
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
