Description Ed Marshall 2003-10-27 12:02:50 EST

Description of problem:
When connecting to an ICQ account with Gaim, the entire client will crash. Known
problem, the thread for the discussion is here, along with a full traceback that
I posted:


A patch for the crash is here:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Gaim.
2. Log into an ICQ account.
3. Boom. ;-)

Actual Results:  Segfault.

Expected Results:  Lots of spam from people I don't know on ICQ. ;-)

Additional info:

Acknowledged and fixed in Gaim CVS. It'd REALLY be nice to get this in before FC
pushes a release out, since Gaim is useless for ICQ users without this patch.
I've tested this as an additional patch against Fedora's 0.72-2, and it works
like a champ.
