Did something just get borked with glibc/perl/irssi?

http://askubuntu.com – I was using irssi about 30 minutes ago now on Ubuntu server 12.04. Everything was perfectly fine and then all of the sudden something happened (my guess is a power failure). The box was restarted. When I logged back in and ran irssi, I got the following: *** glibc detected *** irssi: double free or corruption (out): 0x0000000002085a40 *** ======= Backtrace: ========= /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6(+0x7e626)[0x7ffc01d87626] irssi(config_node_set_str+0x98)[0x491768] irssi[0x491f12] irssi[0x491e61] irssi(config_parse+0x52)[0x492112] irssi[0x48ab81] irssi(settings_init+0xd1)[0x48bf81] irssi(core (HowTos)
