Summary: Another gaim freeze  and then crash

Initial Comment:
At my slow PC I was clicking around a little and that's
when it happened. To be more precise I opened up the
Privacy window and clicked the Add button, then
switched back to the Privacy window and closed the Add
window (as far as I remember). Anyway.. the clicks were
faster than this slow GTK can manage and then it almost
froze (windows were repainted only every now and then)
and it all finished with a crash.

I would also like to say that imho gaim GUI should be
rewritten in something better, faster and well ported
to other platforms (the newest version of GTK maybe -
but iI think it will only negatively affect the speed)
(what about a window manager and things that go with it
that are used on mobile phones or sth) (one idea is
also to recode the whole gaim into Java - it would be
portable, creating custom GUIs is kinda easy there, but
imho it would negatively effect the speed of many other
operations that are now better realized in C). Hm, it
looks like I will have to test how fast gaim works in a
native *nix enviroment before presenting further ideas.

(gaim-2.0.0beta1-debug with GTK that comes with the
gaim-2.0.0beta1 release, Windows XP SP2)
