The GAIM team reports:

A remote user could cause Gaim to crash on some systems by sending the Gaim user a file whose filename contains certain invalid characters. It is unknown what combination of systems are affected, but it is suspected that Windows users and systems with older versions of GTK+ are especially susceptible.
