It is possible that it is crashing after the timeout "close
conversation timeout" - when conversations are closed, they are
initially just hidden for some time, and then are actually closed
later.  The reason for this is so if you reopen a conversation within
a short time, it just resumes the previous conversation.

If this is what is happening, the "Close IMs immediately when the tab
is closed" checkbox should fix the issue.

Your debug output isn't very useful because you've built pidgin with
the dwarf2 debug symbols and the crash report generator can't read
