Well, I did some testing myself and it seems Pidgin 2.3.0 crashes when I have an MSN account. I remove the account and it works just fine.
Anyone else have this problem?
Not exactly... but there does appear to be something amiss with MSN support. I cannot get 2.3.0 to connect to my MSN account, but 2.1.1 (running on my USB drive) works fine.
Well, when I manually edit the accounts.xml file and remove the MSN account, pidgin runs smoothly. When I put it back in it crashes when attempting to log into MSN. The crash has to be related to this in some way. I reverted back to Pidgin 2.2.2 with my MSN account intact and I am back running smoothly.
I think I will wait before upgrading again.
I did the same thing. As soon as I reverted back to 2.2.2, my MSN account connects fine.
2.3.0 was crashing for me randomly. I tried disabling just MSN, but it continued to crash. I've reverted back to 2.2.2 and now I don't have any problems.
2.3.0 ran fine for me as long as I removed the account information from the XML. I didn't try disabling it through the GUI as it would crash on launch.
2.3 crashes twice a day for me and I don't have an MSN account. When I get up in the morning it's crashed and when I get home from work it's crashed. I don't see any pattern yet. I wiped out .purple and started fresh but that didn't help.
