Crashes shortly after making a second call

ekiga -d 4
Description of problem:
I can usually make at least one call with Ekiga (sometimes I don't get any audio being returned, though the firewall settings seem to be right), but when I end that call and try to make another call Ekiga soon crashes. Sometimes I can hear a couple seconds of the second call before it crashes, but I've not yet successfully made multiple calls. The output without -d 4 as an arg shows the following:
assert.cxx(108) PWLib Assertion fail: Function pthread_mutex_unlock failed, file ptlib/unix/tlibthrd.cxx, line 1421
Assertion fail: Function pthread_mutex_unlock failed, file ptlib/unix/tlibthrd.cxx, line 1421
<A>bort, <C>ore dump?
I've attached the output with -d 4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time I finish one call and try to make another.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Ekiga and make a call
2. Hang up
3. Try to make another call
That the second call would stay alive
I'm not sure but it might be issues with PulseAudio or audio as opposed to firewall rules. Do you get a traceback when it crashes? If so can I get you to install the debuginfo packages?
Also does the sounds stop working for any other apps when you have the issue or if you kill the pulseaudio demon does it work?
If you do get a consistent traceback? If so can you install the following list of debuginfo packages so we can get a useful traceback and then run ekiga from the command line.
yum install -y GConf2-debuginfo speex-debuginfo glibc-debuginfo cyrus-sasl-debuginfo opal-debuginfo libv4l-debuginfo ekiga-debuginfo ptlib-debuginfo gtk2-debuginfo evolution-debuginfo gvfs-debuginfo glib2-debuginfo evolution-data-server-debuginfo libnotify-debuginfo alsa-lib-debuginfo
Finally can you also let me know your version of ptlib.
There is a new build in koji that should improve the stability of ekiga 3.2 substantially. Can you possibly try it and update the ticket.
Installed the following packages and they have fixed the problem. Ekiga feels much more stable now.
ekiga-3.2.4-1.fc11,opal-3.6.2-1.fc11,ptlib-2.6.2-1.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
opal-3.6.2-2.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
