Pidgin crashes Ubuntu 12.04 using winbind

    We are in the process of migrating from Ubuntu 10.10 to 12.04

    We use winbind to authenticate active directory users.  Users have roaming profiles on an nfs server.  The NFS roaming profiles are working fine, I can read write and execute without any issues.  Pidgin worked fine in 10.10

    Pidgin crashes while trying to open it.  Also I can log on as root(which is a local user) and pidgin works just fine.

    I ran pidgin in debug mode and here is the log.

    Any ideas why pidgin is crashing?  The only thing that stands out is
    (14:52:22) GLib-GObject: value "-578448492" of type `gint' is invalid or out of range for property `weight' of type `gint'

    and I have no idea what that even means.
