I dont think so. It is your server modules that are crashing, so what
happens on the client shouldn't matter at all.

Unfortunately, the backtrace you've sent from the core-files doesn't
reveal much of where the crash happens - which indicates that there's
something that thrashes the stack and causes the crash.

To begin with, I'd like you to add "--debug" to the hobbitd command
line. This will cause a lot of output to go into your hobbitd.log file,
the interesting bits obviously is what happens when it crashes. I'd
like to see the full log file, though - I'll e-mail you details of where
you can upload it since it's probably too large for e-mail.

It should simply stop sending the messages it doesn't have data for.
