From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4)
Gecko/20030624 Netscape/7.1

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.

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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."
