Thanks for the valgrind log. Searching on google for the offending function brings up a bugreport from gentoo that was fixed by using ./configure --disable-padlock-support.

I've just tried it but pidgin still crashes with the same output.

Today I see that liferea is crashing too. I think these are same problems. If not, i will open another task. Attachment is the valgrind output.

I haven't noticed any problems, but I also haven't restarted pidgin since installing the new gcrypt as I can see from lsof (shows the old lib).

Andy, is above mentioned configure flag from Jan acceptable? Or perhaps someone has come up with a patch somewhere.

The padlock code is the thing that crashes. I don't know what it does, but the crashing code is a piece of inline assembly. I haven't seen this one crashing on my amd64 system though, so this could be anything. The gcrypt developers don't have a clue yet if I have to believe the bugreports.

Also OpenOffice started to crash. See attachment.

Are these crashes on amd64 or on i686?
Comment by Dincer Celik (roadboy) - Tuesday, 08 January 2008, 16:08 GMT
It is i686 on a core2duo.
Comment by Jan de Groot (JGC) - Tuesday, 08 January 2008, 18:24 GMT
There's a new version of libgcrypt in testing for i686. As it takes time to synchronize mirrors, I made it available at http://www.archlinux.org/~jgc/libgcrypt-1.4.0-1.1-i686.pkg.tar.gz.
Please test this package and report if it fixes your issues so we can move it to core.
