Description of problem:
Xchat had been running for a few weeks or so connected to one irc server and
about 5 channels on that server.  I opened up about 3 more channels on that
server, connected to another server and opened up about 5 channels on that one.
 I asked some questions on most of the channels.  Then when I went to close one
of the channels, Xchat crashed.

A one shot problem causing a crash of an application after several
weeks of usage like this, is not something debuggable.

In order to troubleshoot any type of problem like this, it _has_ to
be reproduceable easily, and in within a timeframe that a developer
can debug it.  Running xchat in gdb for 3 weeks and hoping it crashes
is not very helpful unfortunately.

If you can reproduce this problem again faithfully, and provide
step by step instructions on how to do so within a short order of
time, then please provide the details and reopen the bug report.

The same thing actually just happened again.  This time I was only connected to
one server, and exactly 6 channels.  I had asked a few questions on some of the
channels.  I had idled for around 10 minutes or so while I was using my web
browser.  I went back to Xchat and closed one of the tabs and it crashed.  I'm
beginning to wonder if someone is doing this to me.

Comment 3 Glen 2002-12-03 19:26:48 UTC
Once again Xchat crashed when I closed a channel window.  It had been open for
about a week or so.  I can't really reproduce it in a short period of time like
you ask I guess, but it does seem like sooner or later it will happen.
