Thanks! gaim-text has much improved my life...

I have a (possibly exaggerated) concern; revision f59170f3 fixes a 
vulnerability (definitely remote crash, probably remote code execution) that 
exists in gaim-text 2.0.0b6. It's very easy to trigger (have a buddy change 
their name to a format string, while you have the buddy list visible), and 
svn users/downstream don't have the fix.
