KICQ 2.0.0b1 can be remotely crashed

KICQ is an ICQ client, specifically designed for the KDE.
KICQ 2.0.0b1 using icqlib 1.0.0
KICQ can be remotely crashed in a very simple way. Just telnet the machine on wich KICQ is running on the port it's
bound and feed some garbage.
bash-2.05$ telnet 10.0.0.1 1030
Connected to 10.0.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
KDE Crash handler window appears and something like this goes in the console:
KCrash: crashing.... crashRecursionCounter = 2
KCrash: Application Name = kicq path = <unknown>
I have tried to find where in the code the error ocurrs, but the exact place seems to change every time I execute KICQ.
I have contacted the developers and hope a patch is released soon.
