FS#885 - Irssi segfaults upon /part or, sometimes, a server timeout

Hello all,

The segfault corresponding to the attached backtrace happens when I type /part in a channel. I also, sometimes, get a segfault when the connection to a server times out. I couldn't get a backtrace of such a timeout yet, so I can't tell whether they are related.

Operating System: Slackware 13.1 64-bit
Irssi version: 0.8.15
