New question #49392 on pidgin in ubuntu:
https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pidgin/+question/49392

Trying to run pidgin 1:2.5.0-0ubuntu2~hardy1 running Ubuntu 8.04 - the Hardy Heron released on 4/08

Every time it is launched a segmentation fault is the result.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is the debug txt:
