I have my development copy of WeeChat installed in /usr/local/bin/ and
re-compile WeeChat from git sources regularly. I started to notice with 0.4.2
and now 0.4.3 that /upgrade would crash WeeChat.
I found that the symlink in /usr/local/bin would often be missing and I would
have to 'sudo make install' again to create the symlink. All I would see in
/usr/local/bin was the WeeChat binary along with a few other files that are
not related to WeeChat.
I see this probblem regularly on two PCs, both running 64-bit Kubuntu. If
there are several git updates during the day I might see this once or twice
but interestingly I won't see the problem on both PCs at the same time or with
the same update.
I no longer install WeeChat from either the Ubuntu repositories or from a PPA.
The only version on either PC is the version that I compile from source.
