Every time it tries to sync twitter with the engine after restarting the client, this is thrown and the client crashes. If there's plenty to sync or the server is slow enough, it's possible to click the disconnect button in time, otherwise the only option is revoking twitter access and restarting the engine. Error happens client-side only, the server throws no errors. Also it would appear that the 'Report a bug' button didn't paste the whole exception, so if any further info is needed, just ask.

Engine compiled from tarball ( on CentOS.
