thanks for reporting this bug. This only takes pidgin down because the
pidgin developers decided for some reason to deactivate the GStreamer
registry updating in a separate process. I filed a new bug against
pidgin with a patch to use GStreamer properly and then this crash should
be fixed. See bug #578476.

This bug here is still a valid bug but not really critical as it doesn't
cause any problems if applications use GStreamer properly.

It would be nice if someone could get a valgrind log (with
--track-origins=yes) of the actual crash with pidgin. Something in the
LV2 toolchain corrupts memory and things later crash randomly.
Unfortunately I can't reproduce this here, the LV2 plugin works fine for
me :(
