To be precise, the crasher occurs when you’re talking to a contact who changes status… with any emoticons enabled. The emoticons bit is why I didn’t see the crash 😛 Good catch, Hanji.
My powerbook’s power cord has developed a short… with no battery life left and no power cord, I don’t have a Mac until later this week when my Apple-provided replacement (Applecare is so awesome) arrives. Sadness. 🙁
