I closed down bitcoin from the official gui client with File > Exit and the following message appeared in bash:

bitcoin in CMyApp::OnUnhandledException()

I've seen this before, and on restarting bitcoin, I encounter no problems, and transactions work just fine. Does anybody know what is causing this error message to show?

I'm running debian squeeze just FYI.

    This is a bug report and as such very localized in time. Not suitable for this site IMO.

Here's its filing on github. Seems to be an unresolved issue with the client.
