Package: telepathy-haze
Version: 0.2.0-1
Severity: important
Tags: patch

Released versions of telepathy-haze crash if the 'server' parameter for
protocols which have one is blank or contains spaces, due to an
assertion failure in libpurple.  Some versions of Empathy apparently set
blank server parameters; I had thought that it has been fixed, but this
crash was reported to me again a couple of days ago.  The attached patch
makes haze validate that parameter, and reject it if it contains spaces
or is blank.
