Package: mcabber
Version: 0.10.0-1
Severity: serious

Hi all,

mcabber dies with a segmentation fault as soon as it tries to connect to a
prosody server.

I'm not sure what exactly causes the bug, at least connecting to
(with invalid auth data) does not make mcabber segfault, but connecting to
this specific server (which is running prosody) always results in a
segmentation fault.  It should also be noted that an mcabber running on Debian
squeeze is not affected, only the one in sid.
The segfault happens regardless of whether the jabber password was valid or

(yes, the is wrong, but the bug is reproducible with that, too)
