Gaim craches on irc cp1251 encoded text message
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
Gaim crashes upon receiving utf/windows1251 encoded message from an IRC server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect gaim to an IRC server
2.Ask someone to sent you a text message in cyrilic letters: windows-1251 and/or
3.As alternative join a channel and write in it some message in cyrilic letters
using windows-1251 encoding.
Gaim quits with no error message
Should display the text received by the server
When a message is sent to a channel and the message is encoded in windows-1251
encoding the other users in that channel receive the message, so it means gaim
crashes only upon receiving of such encoded message from the server. Also such
message could not only be regular one (MSG, NOTICE and so on) but also
MOTD/Topic of a channel/CTCP and so on.
Starting program: /usr/bin/gaim
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
[New Thread -1208534512 (LWP 20273)]
Program received signal SIGPIPE, Broken pipe.
Program exited with code 01.
Please test this FC6 candidate update package here, does this solve your problem?

It seems to work, I mean it does not crash on windows-1251 encoded characters
sent by the server, I hope everything else work too, I'll test more profoundly
tomorrow, but this is soleved. Thanks.
