Comment(by deryni):

 I commented that a fix that caches the proxy configuration for the
 lifespan of pidgin is unacceptable because it means pidgin can never react
 to system proxy changes.

 It was also pointed out that under no circumstance should this be
 crashing, even under absolutely ludicrous numbers of calls to
 g_spawn_command_line_sync. It also appears to be the case that this is
 crashing inside of glib (or further down the stack) so there may or may
 not be anything pidgin/libpurple/gg can do about the actually issue.

 A mitigation that throttles calls to fetch proxy information is certainly
 not out of line however, nor is seeing if there are ways to request to be
 notified of proxy configuration changes such that we can stop polling
