(In reply to comment #0)

Is it possible to get the log before the crash (Help->Debug in the contact list window, and then select Butterfly in the combo box). This bug seems to be triggered by a contact advertising an empty display picture.

Does the bug happen every time ? Only when a specific contact is connected ?

Thanks for replying Louis-Francis, the debug log is attached to : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/telepathy-butterfly/+bug/617563/+attachment/1513926/+files/telepathy-debug.txt . I can replicate it by closing and reopening empathy, so yes it's probably related to that particular contact :usuario@hotmail.com bash's I've replaced his hotmail username by usuario though. Thanks again.

Could you ask your friend what client he (she) is using ? I think the SHAD1 argument of the display picture is incorrectly encoded. Is that Kopete ? Jonny Lamb recently committed a patch to be more robust about that, but it seems there are still some cases we don't handle correctly.
