Description Colin Charles 2005-04-19 10:09:47 EDT
Description of problem: While having a random chat, gaim core dumps. It's been
happening pretty much all of today

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

How reproducible:
100% crashes, but there are no good steps to reproduce. It "just happens".

Now for a backtrace:

Additional Info: well, MSN is running thru a socks5 proxy if that matters (in
fact, so is icq, aim, yahoo!, and jabber - global proxy settings). Socks was
running thru: ssh -D <port> my@host.com
Comment 1 Richard Laager 2005-04-20 21:34:02 EDT
How many people are in this conversation? What client(s) are being used by the 
other person(s)? 
Comment 2 Colin Charles 2005-04-20 21:57:13 EDT
One conversation. The other person in general, is using MSN 7. I can repeat a
coredump without gdb line #8, because sometimes, it just "crashed". Could be the
fact that the network is flaky sometimes... but dumping core would be wrong

I just noticed that thru a socks5 proxy, I can't seem to initiate an MSN chat
either. But thats a different bug, if at all (probably a limitation with the
Comment 3 Luke Schierer 2005-04-21 09:46:13 EDT
should be able to initate a chat by right clicking on one buddy and selecting
the option, then inviting additional people. 
Comment 4 Colin Charles 2005-04-28 19:32:56 EDT
Further information: when in Modify accounts, and I go show more options, and
for MSN options when I untick Use HTTP Method, the dumps stop. That sorta makes
me happy I guess...
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2005-06-12 16:39:19 EDT
Is this still an issue in 1.3.1?
Comment 6 Colin Charles 2005-06-25 08:28:11 EDT
If using HTTP method, yes crashes persist. If not, no (as per comment #4).
Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 12:06:15 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2008-05-06 20:09:01 EDT
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
