Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499379
Last modified: 2015-08-17 09:00:18 EDT
Same problem reported in BZ#492014 for Fedora, also happens in RHEL 5.3. Will get a stack trace soon.
I found out this is related to memory leak when trying to display users with unicode characters in their display names on MSN.
If I remove such users, pidgin never crashes again.
If I run pidgin from inside Valdring, I get _tons_ of memory leak warnings, it runs very slow, but does not crash.
