Aha, that's because the experiments with our own Farstream transmitters
(or even FsShmTransmitter) aren't even getting as far as emitting
'farstream-new-local-candidate', so we never even get as far as the
code that crashes. If I go back to my very first hack I can reproduce
the crash — and confirm that your patch also fixes it. This is what I

#if 1 /* FIXME make this work... */
	const gchar *uuid = chime_call_get_uuid(chat->call);
	PurpleMedia *media = purple_media_manager_create_media(purple_media_manager_get(),
	printf("media for %s %p\n", uuid, media);
	if (media) {
		gboolean r = purple_media_add_stream(media, "chime", uuid,
						     PURPLE_MEDIA_AUDIO, FALSE, "nice", 0, NULL);
		printf("Add stream %s\n", r ? "succeeded" : "failed");

		GList *cands = g_list_append (NULL,
					      purple_media_candidate_new(NULL, 1,

		purple_media_add_remote_candidates(media, "chime", uuid, cands);


Note that even changing from "nice" to "shm" means that I never get the
farstream-new-local-candidate message that triggers the crash, although
I do still get the Pidgin call UI. We're still a long way from having
this *working*, but I think your patch is going to be necessary by the
time we do get there.
