#16990: Viewing your own buddy information crashes.
 Reporter:  LordHexahedron  |      Owner:  deryni
     Type:  defect          |     Status:  new
Milestone:                  |  Component:  XMPP
  Version:  2.10.12         |   Keywords:  buddy information crash self
 This has only been tested under XMPP, hence the component listing - it may
 be a bug in libpurple but I have no effective way of determining this.

 Attached is a redacted log (I crashed pidgin probably a dozen or so times
 to make sure it is consistent, I redacted the additional ones as they're
 all virtually identical (all are an access violation when trying to access

 Steps to reproduce:
 1.Join a chat ( may or may not work for other protocols, I have not tested
 2.In the buddy list, right click yourself and select info.
 Pidgin will hang, and then terminate with an option to debug, to not
 debug, and to search online.

 In addition this is a regression since version 2.10.11 where it worked
 fine - this has been verified using a legacy install of 2.10.11 connecting
 to the same chat and then successfully viewing my own buddy information
 without crashing.
