Covered multiple times. It's GTK-related. You might want to try the latest Gaim Portable prerelease. It's supposed to fix these errors.

This may be part of a recent issue due to MSN changing the way you connect to its network. Depending on how Gaim is configured to connect, it can crash. Try setting it not to connect to MSN and see if it crashes still. And try the pre-release Bruce mentioned that's based on 2.0 beta 3.
Personally, I simply stopped using the MSN network with Gaim recently. Every single one of my friends on MSN is also on AOL and/or Yahoo, so it's just easier to talk to them there. And, MSN gives you porn spam messages from random "come see my live webcam, I'm hot" girls, whereas AOL and Yahoo don't. MSN is just a waste of time.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
Actually, I've never seen those messages (the porn spam I mean) on MSN Messenger, but my cousin gets a ton of those when she's on Yahoo Messenger. Of course, she goes into every Yahoo chat known to man, so that may explain it. Those rooms are loaded with spam bots.
The problem definitely seems to be only affecting my msn accounts. It's been noted on the Gaim forums, and someone has written a new libMSN.dll that supposedly fixes it here http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1541250&group_i...
However, when I replaced it in the plugins folder, gaim now doesn't appear to support MSn protocol at all. Is this because Portable is different? If so, is there a simple way to make it work?
PS-I always get those spam im's on AIM, never MSN, so for me MSN is better...
The current release version of Gaim Portable is b2. That plugin posted only works with 2.0b3. Try the Gaim Portable 2.0 Beta 3 Pre-Release with that new plugin.
Works great now-thanks so much for the help, and also for the great updates.
