[JDEV] coredump with xdb_sql and user profile changes

I've run into an odd problem -- I'm running jabberd 1.4.1 and xdb_sql
1.1 w/ MySQL -- things are working well enough (some oddities), but I
have run into a major problem/bug --
With my setup, if a user changes their profile a couple of times (2 or
3), it crashes the server (the client is JIM 1.10, if that matters).
In looking at the logs, I can see what appears to be some sort of memory
line 6593 of http://www.ritcey.com/jabber/jabberd.out shows:
xdb_file.c:251 decaching @Å$@@Åfirstname.lastname@example.org/crashtest2.xml
that garbage should be './spool/' -- up to that point, that's what the
other decaching log entries read. Right after that appears in the log,
the next attempt to update the profile results in a coredump --
backtrace at http://www.ritcey.com/jabber/backtrace, but I'm not sure if
it's valid - the damage has been done by the time it dumps core.
Oddly enough, the profile updates never take, tho the database does get
updated (xdb_sql bug, I assume).
jabber.xml and xdb_sql.xml are also available at
http://www.ritcey.com/jabber/ (I didn't include the files, since they
are fairly large).
I suspect it is because of xdb_sql and its interaction with xdb_file,
but I'm not quite sure what it is.
Frankly, I don't care about the profiles (internal, captive audience,
accounts will be created by the admin, etc.), so if the vcard could be
flat-out disabled to fix this, that would be fine too.
I didn't see anything like this on the mailing lists (searchable
archives anywhere?) nor Google.
Thanks for your time and a cool chunk of software.
