Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X-Chat (xchat)
2. Open "Settings" menu
3. Select "Setup.." from menu
4. Open "Interface" sublist from "Categories" window
5. Select "Channel Windows"
6. Select "Transparent Background"
6. Select "Tint Transparency"
7. Press OK
8. X-Chat crashes.
"Tint Transparency" option won't crash program anymore but "Transparent
Background" has no effect.
Transparent background works again, but Tint Transparency crashes X-Chat again.
Tint transparency has basically never worked properly ever as far as
I know. This is something that should ultimately be reported to the
official upstream xchat.org maintainer/author.
Closing bug WONTFIX
If upstream fixes the problem in a future 1.8.x release, feel free
to reopen this in the future.
