Pidgin crashes when I open IM windows

Reported by: Mets Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.4.1 Keywords:


Basically I use Pidgin for AIM and IRC. If I open a window and chat for a little while with some tabs for AIM and some for IRC channels, and then close everything, Pidgin will crash. It doesn't matter how or in what order I close thigns (i.e. all at once or individual tabs then the main window), it will crash. Here's the pidgin.RPT report, thanks for your help!

I tried a few things:

1) FunPidgin (found it on the internet) seemed to not crash, even with Infopane

2) Removing the Infopane does indeed seem to prevent it from happening with normal Pidgin

This is a bug in the infopane plugin, please report it in the plugin pack tracker.
