Bug#779892: segv with /server, hexchat 2.10.2-1+b3

Mike Kupfer
I am seeing segmentation faults when I use the following line to connect
to my IRC server:

  /server -ssl <server-name> 6697 <password>

I don't know if this is the same issue that Lauri Alanko provided a
patch for, but I figured I'd start here.

Connecting from the server list window works okay.  But that causes my
password to be saved as plaintext on disk, so I don't think this is a
good workaround.

gdb gives me the following stack trace:

  (gdb) bt

I don't know what debug packages to install to get a more meaningful

https://github.com/hexchat/hexchat/issues/950 has a similar-looking bug,
but unlike that bug, I didn't add any certs, and I don't use a proxy.

This /server command works okay in xchat, but xchat has been removed
from Stretch, so that's not a viable workaround.

This failure happens on both Jessie and Stretch, (both x86_64).
