beta 5 and 6 crashed on my XP sp2. i'm using msn, yahoo and qq protocols.
strange that today i tried a few steps and it doesn't crash now.
1. rename all protocol dll's to disable them. run gaim then close.
2. enable all protocols except the ones i use. run gaim then close.
3. enable all protocols (adding qq, msn and yahoo step by step). run gaim
and it does not crash.

I too have this crash problem on XP SP2. However I do not have a Sametime
account. I've run gaim -n to disable auto login but that does not fix it.
The windows crash report says:

AppName gaim.exe
AppVer: 2.0.0.0
ModVer: 2.0.0.0
ModName: libgaim.dll
Offse: 00001379

This is gaim2 beta6. Gaim 2 beta 5 works fine.

I've been using the Gaim Windows Position Manager (for MS Windows) plugin
with beta5. Everything works until putting that plugin in the plugin
directory. Did not even get the opportunity to attempt to enable the
plugin. It causes gaim to crash on startup. 

I believe the author is aware of this issue and has created an updated
version. So if you're using this plugin, this may be part of the problem
since the Gaim install exe does not remove 3rd party plugins when it
installs.

I have this same problem, only it is with Yahoo.  I don't have
mystatusbox.dll.  I can use AIM fine, but as soon as I log into Yahoo, Gaim
crashes.

The plot thickens. I started gaim as directed.  gaim.exe -n and disabled
the account.  I exited the application and started normally.  I then logged
into my sametime account and everything worked as normal.  Something broke
somewhere.  This is still a bug that should be resolved.  Even if an
account is having trouble logining in, the whole application should not
fail

I should have figured this out sooner but I was a bit distracted with
other things -- turns out my issue is related to "mystatusbox.dll", one of
the plugins I had been using from the previous beta.  Removing this dll
resolves the issue.

moiph: if you're not using sametime, your issue is probably going to be
something different.  Please open a new bug report containing a crash
report according to the instructions at http://gaim.sf.net/win32/#debug

My current autologins are AIM/ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo, so if it is indeed
related to autologins it's probably MSN or Yahoo.  I'll try reinstalling
beta6 and see if I can pinpoint which account is causing the issue (if that
is indeed what's causing the crash).

This crash appears to be related to your Sametime account.

You should be able run `gaim -n` to disable autologin, then disable your
sametime account and have the rest of your accounts log in successfully.

I'm having the same issue on Vista x64.  I let it upgrade GTK.  Beta 5
works just fine, however (even on the newer GTK version).

Forgot to mention, this is an XP /SP2 machine.
