Description of problem:
Using the 'block' button on an ICQ user within gaim conversation
window will lead to hundreds of spawned 'Unable to Add' dialog
boxes until the system just locks and any action is impossible.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gaim and log into ICQ account.
2. Have someone mesage you and attempt to block them.
3. Now sit back and watch your system die!
Actual Results: System becomes unusable.
Expected Results: I should be able to block a user by following a
predefined method without error and hundreds of 'Unable to add' dialog
Once this problem kicks in. You cannot come back and login
to ICQ as the problem just kicks back in. You must goto
'blist.xml' and remove the ICQ numbers and then restart gaim.
This should be fixed in the gaim 0.74-5 update that's going to be
pushed as an FC errata shortly.
This bug is very much still alive in 0.74-5. I will look at rawhide
later and see if it's fixed in newer releases.
gaim-0.75-1.3.0 is the official FC1 gaim update. Please report back
if this issue is fixed or not.
Please test gaim-0.76-1.FC1 candidate update here to see if it
resolves your problem.
I am assuming this issue is fixed due to lack of response. REOPEN if
this specific issue still exists in the latest gaim-0.76 packages.
