Description Evert Verhellen 2005-12-20 09:19:16 EST
Description of problem:
Gaim crashes randomly even without being in use.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Gaim.
2. Wait long enough.
3. Crash.
Additional info:
Because Gaim started to disappear randomly I decided to restart the program from
gdb in order to get a useful stack trace. However it seems that there isn't much
of a stack trace:

(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/bin/gaim
Reading symbols from shared object read from target memory...done.
Loaded system supplied DSO at 0x111000
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
[New Thread -1208338752 (LWP 6328)]
Detaching after fork from child process 6331.
Detaching after fork from child process 6332.
Creating link /home/evert/.kde/socket-fedora.
can't create mcop directory

Program exited with code 01.
(gdb) thread apply all bt
(gdb) bt
No stack.

When trying to establish a new connection I received the following message
initially: "The MSN servers are temporarily unavailable. Please wait and try
again.". I don't know if this has anything to do with the crash though.

The arts bug snuck into FC4 updates?

^^ they're the key lines to me, and other recent duplicate reports say that the
update from the weekend didn't help at all.

Doing "rpm -qi gaim" says:
