We are using multiple IM systems, Yahoo/Google Talk/AIM/MSN.  We exist multiple times on each others' buddy lists due to this.  I have him "grouped" on my buddy list.  When I talk to him on Yahoo, an OTR button is there.  If I then switch to Google talk without closing the conversation window, a second OTR button is there.  From this point, if I've established two private sessions to the same person (via different IM systems), and I attempt to close the conversation window, Gaim crashes (as does Pidgin for him if he tries it).

I have not seen this issue before. I've seen the double button (hard to
avoid due to gaim's design of grouping buddies), but I've never it crash.

Can you add me twice so we can crash my gaim/pidgin? PaulWouters at jabber.org
