Bitlbee segfaults

Description

BitlBee 3.0.4+devel+849-1 installed from debian packages

Invoked by regular user on laptop: "strace -t /usr/sbin/bitlbee -D -n"

Using weechat as IRC interface.

It segfaulted with:

(process:16603): GLib-CRITICAL : g_strcasecmp: assertion `s1 != NULL' failed

It has been crashing like this numerous times ever since I removed a buddy from my buddy list. Prior to this, it has never crashed.

Since it was crashing numerous times I ran an strace to try and figure out why. It looks like it crashed after receiving a "401 unauthorized" from twitter, but I am no expert. Perhaps I should be using different strace params?

The last few seconds of the strace output are to be attached.

(was using this devel version because I had problems with being unable to use MSN on the stable 3.0.4)

Will upgrade to latest devel. version shortly, and I'll report back here if it, too, crashes.

If I had a nickel for every time someone reported this bug....

This is Twitter having a bad week. See bug #893 (I think).

Replying to Wilmer van der Gaast <wilmer@…>:

I saw that bug, but I got the impression that the symptom in that case was simply the Twitter account disconnecting, not the entire process segfaulting, so I filed it anyways.

I have installed 3.0.4+z+20120110+devel+872-2, which is supposed to resolve that issue. If it continues, I'll note it here.

Ah yes, the crashes *are* related, but there were some other bugs for those. I already closed those. Bug #888 is maybe the one I meant, not sure.

Either way, with that snapshot you should be fine.
