(gaim) AIM/ICQ autoreconnect weirdness
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
if gaim looses connection by some reason and I do the reconnect, then
all of my icq buddies (I only use icq :( so don't know if it has the
same problem with msn ...) are displayed as offline, and I also appear
as offline for them
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wait for connection lost
buddies appear offline, and I appear offline for them too
gaim should manage such situation, and work properly after reconnection
Mark, we have been seeing this quite a bit recently (not just rh/fc),
it isn't just icq, but also aim. it seems that if we reconnect
(fast?), we aren't always getting/activating the server side list.
I've been seeing this with gaim for more than a year now. It *seems*
that if there is a small delay before reconnect, this problem doesn't
Any progress on this? It seems like the delay needs to be like 10+ seconds for
it to work again. =(
Hmm, I think I haven't seen this behavior in the last few weeks with gaim-1.2.x.
Can anyone confirm?
I haven't seen it in perhaps a week, but this has always been at least partially
a server problem, one we should be able to work around, but cannot.
It seems to still happen, but far less frequently these days. Keeping open.
I haven't seen this behavior in gaim-2.0.0 for a while now. Should we close?
Haven't seen this for a very long time now. Closing.
