I "fixed" the instability with:
# rpm -e xchat
# yum install konversation

Normally, I would have taken some time to try to find some useful info towards 
fixing this, however, in this case it kept crashing while I was in the middle 
of some IRC meetings and I didn't have time to deal with it.

The instability had gotten steadily worse with each errata.  It was 
segfaulting without warning at random points.  I never figured out how to 
cause the segfault.  Don't you just hate that kind of bug?

If I get some time (it'll be about 3 weeks before that's possible), I'll 
reinstall xchat and try to get a dump of it's death.
