Pidgin Crashes Frequently With Segmentation Fault

Description

I'm not sure what's triggering the segmentation fault, but I hope the debug log can help someone more savvy than me in figuring it out.

This started after I rebuilt Pidgin from source to integrate the XEP-0280 patch (v5). Since that caused it to crash, I uninstalled and reinstalled pidgin from the Pidgin PPA repository. However, the frequent crashes didn't stop.

It looks like the debug symbols don't match the binaries - this probably means that you're still using the self-built binaries (and your patch is also likely causing the crash).

You need to reinstall the OS libpurple package, not just the pidgin package.

For future reference, you shouldn't install manually built stuff into /usr (it should go into /usr/local instead).
