Bug#779892: workaround: disable join dialog

Mike Kupfer
I remembered that I could use ldd to find out what libraries hexchat is
linking against.  It's a long list, so I only downloaded debug symbols
for likely-looking packages.  Unfortunately, that didn't give me a
better stack trace.  When I get more time, I'll try additional debug
packages.

I did figure out how to work around the crashes that I'm seeing.  (I
don't know if this helps for the crashes that the original submitter was
seeing.)  In $HOME/.config/hexchat/hexchat.conf, change

    gui_join_dialog = 1

  to

    gui_join_dialog = 0

regards,
mike

Hi Mike!

I happen to be the new hexchat maintainer in Debian :)

You haven't provide this "improved" stack trace, but more importantly,
there is now a quite new version I'd like you to try, 2.12.4.  Could
you?

Yeah, sorry about never getting the improved stack trace.

Sure, I can try 2.12.4.  I see it's in testing, so I'll update my
testing VM and give it a spin.  I'll try to find time this weekend.

cheers,
mike

Then again, re-reading the bug log I noticed that till now I missed the
message from Lauri Alanko <[hidden email]> that also contained a patch…

I don't know if that is actually what it is causing this crash (that in
my limited tests I couldn't reproduce), but it's for sure something that
is wrong and ought fix.

I'm uploading that patch right now, closing this bug with that.  I'd be
very happy if then you could test and see whether that actually fixes
it; if so, no traceback needed anymore :)


Thanks already.
