Description Brian Beaudoin 2006-12-01 11:55:38 EST
Description of problem:

After upgrading to gaim-2.0.0-0.22.beta5.fc6, signing into Jabber causes GAIM to
crash with a core dump.  This did not happen with gaim-2.0.0-0.19.beta4.fc6 or
with gaim-2.0.0-0.beta5.i386.rpm compiled from the GAIM project's source RPM.

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


How reproducible:

Attempt to sign into a Wildfire Jabber 3.x server with RSA encryption keys.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Launch GAIM
2.  Enable the Jabber account
3.  Get a 21 MB Core dump
Additional Info:

"Gaim has segfaulted and attempted to dump a core file.
This is a bug in the software and has happened through
no fault of your own."

This crash only occurs with the source released by The Fedora Project.  I've
reverted to the beta5 package built from GAIM's source.

This is Bug #217335.  You can workaround this problem temporarily with "rpm -e
cyrus-sasl-md5 --nodeps" until gaim's jabber sasl authentication is fixed.

This may be a duplicate of the bug in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5ES Beta 2 (and
you may maintain the packages for both), but shouldn't the FC6 bug remain
tracked in the FC6 bug tracker (even if the resolution is the same?)

Perhaps... although I don't think it is important to do so.  I don't mind
closing further duplicates.
