#1050 segfault in something about sound


Liferea has been crashing for some random reasons. It never happened while using it, a few hours later I would go check the feed, and liferea would have been gone. So I ran it from a terminal, hoping to see something and I did. Here's the error message I get:

(liferea:6059): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid uninstantiatable type `gtk-enable-event-sounds' in cast to `LifereaHtmlView'

Liferea did receive signal 11 (Segmentation fault).
You have probably triggered a program bug. I will now try to 
create a backtrace which you can attach to any support requests.

Nothing else appeared, I'm guessing the trace was the message printed before. Is there anything else I can supply to help having this fixed?

I'm using Liferea 1.8.6 in Debian wheezy (testing) for i386.

    This sounds like a problem with the HTML renderer library Webkit as it is the only code used by Liferea that would use sound.

    I fear there is nothing we can do. Only down-/upgradign Webkit might proof anything.
