Package: synergy
Version: 1.3.1-2ubuntu2
Severity: important

I'm using synergy with a newly installed hardy box with KDE4 as server
and a gutsy box with KDE3 as client. 

If I mark a URL on the gutsy box and attempt to paste that URL into an
Opera window (which would cause Opera to GET the resource), synergys
on the hardy box crashes reproducably. In my logs, I see stuff like:

Mar 14 10:17:28 tigger kernel: [82259.555652] synergys[18750]:

I went into the libc6 trap with this box yesterday, but downgraded
trivially, so I wouldn't think that's related.
