			<p>If that works, start moving Xtras back ??? relaunching Adium after each one ??? until the problem reoccurs; then you've found the bad one. Please do not create a ticket for a non-standard Xtra. The Adium team isn't responsible for Xtras that aren't bundled with Adium, and creating a ticket is not an effective way to get the Xtra fixed. Instead, please report the problem to the Xtra's author.</p>

			<p>Corrupt or old preferences can be a good source of crashes and other odd behavior. It may also happen that you've managed to configure your Adium in such a way to discover a bug that requires a specific combination of preferences to trigger. It's easy to rule out both of these by trying a fresh set of preferences.</p>

			<p><b>This is a very common fix for many issues and therefore is a highly recommended step</b> - please try it even if you don't want to trash your preferences altogether since it can at least help narrow down the problem and may provide alternate solutions. In many cases where this solves the problem we do not have the manpower to discover why the preferences were causing a problem (as this can be a lengthy process), so your only solution may be to lose all or some of your preferences.</p>
