[abrt] crash in pidgin-2.7.0-1.fc13: raise: Process /usr/bin/pidgin was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
Last modified: 2010-05-14 20:59:43 EDT
abrt 1.1.0 detected a crash.
Attached file: backtrace
comment: Trying to test the new features of retrieving the X-Status of an ICQ user in my buddy list. Obviously Pidgin seems to crash when the buddy does not use a client which supports X-Status. Could not properly test yet what happens when a buddy uses the official client but I don't remember any crashes when testing it.
reason: Process /usr/bin/pidgin was killed by signal 6 (SIGABRT)
release: Fedora release 13 (Goddard)
How to reproduce
1. Start Pidgin (>= 2.7.0) and add one ICQ account
2. Right-click any buddy not using the official client (e.g. Pidgin) and choose "Get X-Status Msg"
3. Pidgin will crash and produce this backtrace
4. Also reproducible with Pidgin 2.7.0 (upstream) for Windows
Created attachment 414020 [details]
I did some more testing. Pidgin does not crash when the buddy is using the official client. It does, however, also occur when the buddy is using Adium on MacOS X.
