From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4)
Description of problem:
Used version 0.74 without a problem. Installed 0.75
and it hangs when connecting to Yahoo! The "progress"
bar gets to the middle and there it stays.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GAIM 0.75 - just released by RedHat a couple of days ago.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start GAIM with a formerly working account
2. expect the connection to YM server to fail/hang
Actual Results: Nothing. GAIM just hangs there.
Expected Results: Connection complet, list of online friends appears.
I tried also compilation of the sources in RH7.2 - same result.
They haven't got the protocol quite right yet. As the gaim home page
says "wait for 0.76."
