Help reproducing a crash

I have managed to get Pidgin to crash, but I don't know how to reproduce
the circumstances. Maybe someone here with more experience can provide
me with a series of steps to reproduce the scenario.
This morning, when I logged into Pidgin from my Internet tablet, my MSN
account told me that my buddy list was out of sync, and would I like to
add buddy "Foo" to group "Bar" ? I said "No". Then it asked whether I
would like to add buddy "Foo" to group "Baz", and I said yes. It crashed
After restarting, it asked the same question, and I said "Yes" again.
This time, it ran for a while (20 seconds (?)), and then it crashed.
Since I like having Pidgin up and running, I logged onto the same
accounts from my desktop, and Pidgin neither complained about an
out-of-sync list, nor asked me to add buddy "Foo" to some group. I quit
Pidgin, ran it on the tablet again, and it was fine.
Was it such that the server needed updating ?
Was it such that my buddy list needed updating ?
Is there a way I can recreate the situation whereby my buddy list is out
of sync with the server ?
I run Pidgin 2.0.0 on my tablet (with some UI patches to make it fit on
the small screen).
I run an MTN version of Pidgin on the desktop (About says 2.0.1devel).
TIA for your help,
