Description Dave Jones 2006-07-28 23:39:13 UTC
I noticed my machine I'd left logged into irc at the office fell off the net,
and on further investigation found no xchat running, but in its place, a shiny
core dump!

Backtrace is sketchy on details though:

Is this a duplicate of bug #188894? This is the sketchy FC5 xchat 2.6.0 

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2007-07-12 16:41:56 UTC
Have you seen this happening with any XChat version other than 2.6.0 (in other 
words, anything other than FC5)? If this only ever happened with 2.6.0, I'll 
file this in the 2.6.0 D-Bus plugin unloading memory corruption bucket (aka bug 
#188894), but if this happens with other versions too, it's a separate bug 
worth investigating. Note that both earlier and later versions count because 
the upstream bug causing bug #188894 was introduced in 2.6.0 and fixed in 

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2007-07-12 20:57:35 UTC
I stopped using xchat earlier this year, so I've not seen it happen since.

Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2007-07-14 12:12:01 UTC
I think it doesn't make much sense to keep this open. If anyone sees this still 
happening in a current version, we can always reopen it.
