I installed pidgin on Om2008.12 (using the default repos, with all my
packages up to date), and it segfaults when I try to run it :

Starting program: /usr/bin/pidgin
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Are other people having issues with pidgin ?
