Initial Comment:
gaim crashes whenever someone im's you with the font
"Symbol" or you view someone's profile with those
characters. could be for other fonts/situations so far,
but not certain

lschiere is right, this is a known pango issue. (It used to
crash; now, thankfully, it just doesn't show the characters)

win32. i suspected that might be the case. this is probly a
case of pango failing to find the font even though it is there.

the bug situation must be reproduced using the AOL Instant
Messenger Client as the input agent, and gaim as the
receiving agent. AIM can input text using the font "Symbol"
(possibly other fonts as well can cause this bug). no
backtrace or stacktrace of this can be produced, i have
tried before.

this happens in a couple places (but probably only 1, really):
im history plugin displaying the previous im
profiles displaying characters in that font
instant messages containing those characters in that font

to my knowledge, that font is installed in all ms windows,
perhaps even other platforms

can you get a backtrace (unix, gaim.sf.net/gdb.php) or stack
trace (win32, gaim.sf.net/win32/)

I cannot duplicate it. do you have that font installed? is
this on win32 or unix?
