KDE4's Kopete uses polish/libgadu to implement the Gadu-Gadu protocol and expects this library to be compiled with pthread support.

Without pthread support, libgadu calls fork() to start a resolver thread that then calls exit() when done. Kopete does not expect exit() to be called from a child and attempts to shut down the entire application, leading to a crash. With pthread enabled, the exit() is avoided and no crash occurs.
Run KDE4's Kopete, connect using the Gadu-Gadu protocol => KCrash pops up a dialog box informing that an instance of Kopete has crashed.
Apply the attached patch.
