Bug Description

I was trying to mend a broken installation of gwibber.

I deleted all configuration and data files, rebooted, started unity and gwibber.

I added an account and recieved a prompt to authorise my account with twitter.

The crash dialog appeared.

This is repeatable.

"Invalid instruction" when I'm trying to authorise.

I'm using Russian interface in Ubuntu.

There was the same problem with 11.10 and it was because of different languages/encodings as I can remember.
