Could you you run the following: 'gconftool-2 -g /apps/xchat/plugins/loaded',
and provide me with the results?

Comment 2 Simon Goodall 2006-06-28 08:29:28 UTC
gconf output:

A little bit more info. If somebody says "hi somenick" where somenick is my
nick, then a message appears on screen saying "message in roomname". If xchat is
running in a different desktop, then all is well. However, if it is iin the
current desktop, that is when the problem occurs. 
When the on-screen message appears, it stays there until somebody speaks in irc.
Until then, I am unable to do anything. The mouse and keyboard do not have any
effect on my desktop.

I am not sure whether xchat needs to be in focus or not, but I am pretty sure
the channnel the message is related to needs to be open.
Usually I talking in irc, then swtich to reading a webpage until somebody speaks.

Are you still experiencing this problem with the latest version?  I've been
unable to reproduce this bug.

Comment 5 Simon Goodall 2006-08-30 19:55:11 UTC
I have been running with the OSD disabled to avoid the problem. I have now
re-enabled it and will report back.

Comment 6 Simon Goodall 2006-09-24 16:40:03 UTC
I've had no re-occurance of this issue.

Comment 7 Brian Pepple 2006-09-24 16:55:45 UTC
Ok, I'll close it for now then, since I've been unable to reproduce this.  If
you experience it again, it can always be reopened.
