No, the current version is simply buggy, I haven't had time to fix it,
and I accidentally destroyed my svn, so I don't have the older, better
working version anywhere, sorry about that. As you can see from the
website, there's lots of improvement ideas[1] (thanks tigert), just
waiting for me to have some time to implement. If someone wants to help,
I'd be more than happy, I'm quite busy right now.

The current version uses the asynchronous API to do the xmlrpc calls,
and it is causing the segfaults. If someone has the 0.0.8 and the
xmlrpc-c library used by that version (preferably the sources too), I'd
be happy to get them. =)

The packages for xmlrpc-c 1.0 are in the maemo-hackers apt
repository[2], under the name libxmlrpc-c3, but should be installed, if
you got the package installed.

Possible workaround for the segfault is to remove other of the API
plugins from /usr/lib/maemo-blog. If you have a blog that supports the
metaweblog api, remove the libblogger.*, and vice versa. This worked for
me, but not quite sure if it helps.
