Try getting a backtrace of the crash. It's likely a bug in the library

Can you tell me how exactly to go about getting a backtrace?

I've tried using gdb on python (to run g-ir-scanner) without any special
setting, but I'm unable to break on g_log.

Setup PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, etc. needed as per you environment.

Do the following:

# cd /home/ankit/devel/pidgin-dev/finch/libgnt/
# export GI_SCANNER_DEBUG="save-temps"
# make

Note the lines (will have different temporary directory prefix) like:
(process:13172): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_key_file_has_group: assertion 'key_file != NULL' failed
Command '['/home/ankit/devel/pidgin-dev/finch/libgnt/tmp-introspectZP9FjN/Gnt-2.8', 
 returned non-zero exit status -11

then run (as mentioned, "ZP9FjN" will differ):

# gdb tmp-introspectZP9FjN/Gnt-2.8
(gdb) r --introspect-dump=tmp-introspectZP9FjN/functions.txt,tmp-introspectZP9FjN/dump.xml

You might have to use: 

# gdb tmp-introspectZP9FjN/.libs/Gnt-2.8

if libtool's wrappers are enabled.

Set breakpoints and debug as needed.

Hope this helps.
