livejournal client stress

I installed the newest version of the unix livejournal client, called logjam, because I'd heard it was a lot more stable than the previous version (loserjabber). In particular, it's apparently not prone to loserjabber's annoying habit of crashing and losing your journal entry just because it can't find the livejournal site. I used it happily on the day I installed it, and exited the program neatly. But today, I haven't been able to use it at all. The login screen appears briefly, then disappears, and I get a Segmentation Fault (core dumped) error in my console window. How helpful. I have no idea what's causing the problem, and it is rather annoying.

As I couldn't get logjam to work at all earlier, I posted through the update.bml?mode=full page, specifying the user icon I wanted to use and my current mood. But when I viewed my journal just now, I found that my mood was missing. Going to the Edit Entries page showed that my user icon was set to "default" and mood set to "None". I fixed these, saved the entry, did a forced reload - and still they weren't there. Tried this a few more times, and gave up. I had to use the Windows client to fix my missing mood on my last entry, and I'm having to use it now to type this. Grrr.
