Description of problem:
After sending a message to MSN buddy, the program dies when his response should pop to my screen (the icon shows that he was typing the message just before the crash). This occurred every time when trying to discuss with the particular buddy.
The problem started when I run yum update on 20th Dec 2005, for the first time in about couple of weeks. The update included, for example, several KDE 3.5 packages (though I'm using Gnome).
The error message on command line prompt said something like "unable to create mcop <something>". (Sorry for not remembering the details, I didn't realize to copy-paste the message in store. If the bug occurs again, I will post the exact message here)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send a message to a MSN buddy
2. Buddy sends something back
Actual Results: Gaim dies. The message never appears on screen (or if it does, the crash occurs so suddenly after that I don't see the message)
Expected Results: The message should have appeared on screen.
this is duplicate of the arts bug.

arts-1.5.0-0.2.fc4 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue. If
these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in
this bug report.
Yep, this seems like the same thing. Thanks for prompt response, and sorry for
not browsing the bugs db carefully enough in the first place!
