Description of problem:
i have no problems if i only connect to yahoo, but with MSN, it connects, retreives the buddy list, and finally just crashes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gaim
2. connect to a msn account
Actual Results: this is what i get if i run it from the command line:
*** glibc detected *** gaim: double free or corruption (out): 0x08a2a1f8 ***
======= Backtrace: =========
Expected Results: gaim connecting and listing buddies as usual.
it works if it run gaim using:
try setting your sound playback to something other than 'automatic'. I suggest
changing to 'command' but leave the command bank.I'm just guessing this may be a
duplicate of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=169631
I don't think this is a duplicate of Bug #176080. This might be a corner case
due to some unique network configuration maybe involving a proxy. Javier are
there any non-standard things about your network?
the problems remained the same when i chose console beep or automatic. But a few
days ago i "yum update" my system, its working fine now with gaim-1.5.0-9.fc5.3
but i'm sure gaim was the problem since yum update a long list of files.
in my computer i have to network interfaces, one local (and using a proxy/squid
to connecto to the internet) the other one using NAT to connect directly to the
internet. but this has always been the case.
It could have been a compiler bug exposed in a corner case by MSN (always flaky
when using proxy). If you cannot reproduce this anymore...
