Pidgin Crash on Launch (intermittent)

Reported by: JWilliamCupp Owned by: EionRobb
Milestone: Component: unclassified
Version: 2.12.0 Keywords:


Pidgin crashed on launch 27JAN2018. It did so six times in a row. Thereafter, I downloaded the gdb debugger and tried to get a backtrace ... but with the debugger open it didn't crash.

On 28JAN2018 Pidgin again crashed on launch. I started the debugger and tried again to get a back trace. Then it did not crash. I closed the debugger, and re-launched Pidgin, and it started up normally -- no crash.

I submit here the trace I did get in hopes it provides some clue anyway.
