Pidgin crashes when trying to paste text

sam
Hello,

When using Pidgin on ports (system, etc. = -current), I have found that
Pidgin consistently crashes when pasting information from websites.
This happens in particular with guardian.co.uk.

(gdb) [~]$ gdb pidgin pidgin.core

Core was generated by `pidgin'.
Program terminated with signal 6, Aborted.

Current language:  auto; currently asm

If I CTRL-V, there is a crash.
If I right click and click "paste", there is a crash.
If I right click and paste "as plain text", there is no crash.

I am using OTR. My malloc conf:
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  6 Mar 31 17:17 /etc/malloc.conf -> AJGU>>

Example text is the contents of the news update box (from 'How' to
'messenger' at the end of the quote):
http://www.theguardian.com/politics/live/2015/may/09/election-aftermath-live-news-comment-and-reaction#block-554df3a7e4b031be1c73befd

Any ideas? Is this a bug in Pidgin and should it be reported upstream,
can I change something configuration to fix it, or should I inform the
porters of a bug?

Looks like you're using the gtkspell flavour, correct?

Yes, I am. However, I just reproduced the same crash (same gdb bt
output) with the plain, vanilla pidgin flavour.
