Comment (by iris18):

 I have been running pidgin for 8 weeks without issue. But the file was
 getting large (running 800MB in memory) and I wanted to close it and
 restart. I did that on April 16. It's been just over 30 hours and it did
 it again. I had been typing in a window, I had another program make a
 noise (Discord) and I went to that program. I came back to Pidgin and it
 had locked up. Obviously it was fine with other items running for two
 months, and had been fine for months before that. I haven't done any
 updates or changes since then. So it still doesn't seem to make sense why
 it locks. And no, I cannot run a debug log because Pidgin refuses to
 accept any commands when it locks. Everything stops.
