pidgin crashes when anyone else me chinese text

Reported by: diputz42 Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.6.4 Keywords: chinese crashes aim
Cc: diputz42@…


Whenever someone sends me Chinese text through AIM (I'm assuming other protocols would react the same way), Pidgin crashes instantly before even being able to display the Chinese text.

When I re-open Pidgin and double click that individual's name to open a message box which shows the log from the most recent conversation, Pidgin crashes again while attempting to display the Chinese characters.

The actual log files (*.txt) in the Pidgin log folder for the conversation does show the Chinese characters properly.

  • Component changed from AIM to winpidgin (gtk)
  • Owner changed from MarkDoliner to datallah

As you suspected, this is not AIM specific, but a font/display issue. I suspect it is a duplicate of #8129 but hopefully datallah can confirm.
