BitchX randomly gets into an infinite loop when attempting to change servers, then infinitely scrolls: Select failed with [bad file descriptor] in the main window. I have taken core files of both scr-bx and BitchX while this is happening, though I don't really know what to do with gdb to help disagnose this.
This is, as far as I know what goes on:
client has been up for a long time (e.g. 17 days in the latest case)
IRC Server gets desynced, I do a /disconnect. BitchX then says
use /server to connect to a server twice in a row. I type /disconnect again and it only says it once. Now I type /server some.irc.server, it begins to connect, then just sits there. Now if I type /disconnect again my screen fills up with Select failed with [Bad file descriptor].
I'll try to figure out whats going on, but I'm not much of a programmer.
Not known yet, not really sure where to go with the core files from here.
