Random crashes or Twitter disconnects with GLib error

IRC client+version: irssi 0.8.15 Operating System: Public server

At random intervals bitlbee will either disconnect from Twitter with the message "Error: Authentication failure", or crash with a signal 11. In either case I get the same error message:

GLib-CRITICAL **: g_strcasecmp: assertion `s1 != NULL' failed

This is at least the fifth bug about this topic filed today. You could have checked the timeline, at least.

My apologies, I did a search for the error with no hits. I'll avoid using that in the future.

Yeah, I guess the search is not very useful, and the glib error wouldn't bring up anything since I don't think it was mentioned in the other bug reports.

I'm committing a fix for the auth failures now. As said, this is Twitter fucking up and I'm now updating BitlBee to ignore those fuckups instead of doing the right thing.
