Its fixed now :)
Its actually a problem with ubuntu one. If you
1. Log out of Ubuntu one
2. delete the .config/ubuntuone and .config/desktop-couch and .cache/ubuntuone and .cache/desktop-couch
3. Go to gnome-keyring (applications>passwords and encryption keys) and delete all the ubuntuone keys in there (it should be fairly obvious which ones they are)
4. Restart ubuntuone

From there you login to your account and gwibber should start working again.

Shane, that process isn't working for me, unless I didn't do something correctly.

1. I killed ubuntuone-syncdaemon and -login (and wasn't logged into the web interface)
2. yep
3. just had one OAuth key
4. started U1 via System-> Prefs -> U1
5. restarted and connected
6. launched gwibber from indicator-applet, same crash.

Oh I forgot .local/desktop-couch
So do everything above and also delete .local/desktop-couch too

That worked, Shane.

If this works for everyone to resolve this issue, is there something else that should be done? Any new users experiencing this?

The fix hasn't been released yet, it will be in the next Gwibber release.
