  transmission-gtk crashed with SIGABRT in event_errx()

Status in transmission package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  probably the only bug is the fact that this error message presented

  What I expected:
  I shut transmission down very quickly after start up. I expected Transmission to close  & then nothing to happen. 
  what happened:
  I briefly opened transmission to see if any downloads were waiting for a session.
  Seeing no jobs requiring attention, I then quickly shut transmission down again, whereupon the error message presented itself.
