After some more poking at this, this is what I can conclude:
When using the newly updated azureus package from rawhide on Fedora 8, I have
found that if the user has an old .azureus settings directory (Generated by an
older version of Azureus) in his home directory, Azureus will crash when
selecting "Show Details" in the same manner as described in the original bug
report description. If the user removes his old settings, thereby letting
Azureus create a new .azureus directory, things work fine.
BUT, here's where the weird things start up! If I go to
http://azureus.sourceforge.net and download the Azureus tarball for Linux, it
does not crash when using settings originally created by an older version of

I can constantly reproduce this problem.
Removing azureus.config and azureus.config.bak fixes it. This is a workaround
for the time-being. I am looking into something better.
A fix is being built into rawhide now, and should be available tomorrow sometime.
azureus-184.108.40.206-2.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
