Another one: scroll wheel over the nation group tabs in the nation selection dialog.
I guess it's something in our general notebook handling.

Aha, I've found a specific circumstance where this happens: if I have both the Chat and Messages tabs open (in "Separate" layout) and I frob the scroll wheel while over that area, which has the effect of switching between the tabs, I get this error.

From S2_3 r19438 (+ patch #2556 + patch #2569):

(This doesn't look like a terribly useful backtrace, mind.)

After a session with S2_3 r19412, I saw this several times on the client's console. I don't think I've seen it before, and I don't know what exactly triggered it.

We can't really do anything more with this report as it stands; I'm raising the bug mainly in case anyone else has seen this one. The way to get more info is described here; I'll try to remember to run like this in case it happens again.

(Running on Ubuntu Linux 10.04 x86_64; GNOME desktop theme is "Ambiance".)
