Your PNG support of GTK+ is broken. This code fails:
        static IndicateManager()
        {
            PersonChatIconBase64 = Convert.ToBase64String(
                PersonChatView.IconPixbuf.SaveToBuffer("png")
            );
            GroupChatIconBase64 = Convert.ToBase64String(
                GroupChatView.IconPixbuf.SaveToBuffer("png")
            );
        }

The issue was fixed by reinstaller the package that contains the PNG loader:
sudo apt-get --reinstall install libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0
