Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 172186
Kopete crash when receiving auth on startup
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:16 EST
Description of problem:
A person I've got on my ICQ list has asked for authorisation while I was
offline. Whenever I start Kopete now, I get about 50 authorisation windows
opened. Closing any of them (ok, cancel, esc, enter) crashes Kopete. I'll
attach a call-stack from the KDE crash handler.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE: 3.4.2-0.fc3.2 Red Hat
I've not attempted to reproduce this, but it happens almost all the time for
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Kopete (from menu or command line)
2. Close one or more of the authorisation windows (e.g. Ok or Cancel)

The crash seems to be caused by double freeing of heap memory; running Kopete
under Valgrind shows this.
It seems Kopete from the current KDE 3.5 SVN has fixed this problem, so
pushing out KDE 3.5 (when released) will likely fix this bug.
