#146 segmentation fault when starting new conversation


I open pidgin and try to double click on the user I want to IM, pidgin crashes. Ran pidgin from terminal with -d argument and this seems to be the relevant information. I opened a new bug, since the one I saw that was similar didn't have much information, so i was unable to determine if it was the same problem.

(13:50:05) pidgin-encryption: get_buddy_default_autoencrypt for 0x22f36f0:<username>
(13:50:05) pidgin-encryption: Found buddy:<username>:0

    I believe this is a duplicate of another bug, fixed now in 3.1. Please reopen if 3.1 does not fix this.
