 Replying to [comment:3 Jaywalker]:
 > I believe the loop he's referring to is the same as #2931. The debug
 logs showed the dictionary_parse function was being called over and
 over... however I was never able to produce a steady repeat of it and it
 hasn't happened to me in some time. The backtrace included there may be of
 some assistance.

 This freezing happens to me nearly without fail after having signed into
 the MySpace IM service once or twice after deleting cache/preference
 files.  It's only when attempting to connect to MySpace, all the other
 protocols I use (AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Jabber/GTalk) do relatively fine.
 I'm currently using AdiumX 1.2.1 on MacOS X 10.5.1, but it's been
 happening for several revisions of both the messenger client & OS.  I'd be
 happy to submit an Apple CrashReporter log (the program doesn't crash,
 just freezes, but it still generates an unresponsive application log when
 you force-quit asking if you want to send it to Apple), or even download
 the debug-enabled build of AdiumX and attach the log from that.

 I miss talking to Tom, after all... ;)
