This error is caused by an incomplete status bar definition: there a
status bar applet defined in your config which lacks a "label"

I don't think so :) wmiirc crashes generally do not cause wmii to
crash. It is a serious matter if the entire WM crashes, leaving you
at a virtual terminal.

I would recommend that you enable core dumps (ulimit -c unlimited),
run wmii, cause the crash to occur, and send a GDB backtrace to this
mailing list:

  gdb `which wmii` your_core_dump_file
  bt full
