This might be the same bug. Happened as I was clicking on the google feeling lucky plugin.
All the other similar bugs were marked invalid.

dmesg gave me this
[ 9498.137664] show_signal_msg: 36 callbacks suppressed
[ 9498.137677] pidgin[4289]: segfault at 7fe300000019 ip 00007fe3620196e5 sp 00007fff99f398d0 error 4 in[7fe361f9b000+1b2000]

I'll attach a file with all my information (logs.txt)
If it happens again I have just downloaded the debug symbols and provide the results.
