Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219501
Buddy ticker shows wrong buddy states
Last modified: 2008-05-06 13:11:01 EDT
Gaim's buddy ticker plugin seems to get confused over the state of buddies. If
one of my contacts logs in, then becomes idle, then becomes active again, the
icon in the buddy ticker is out of sync with the (correct) state as displayed in
the main buddy list - i.e. when the contact is idle the ticker says they're
active, and when they're active the ticker says they're idle.
Furthermore, if a buddy logs in and then logs out again, they don't disappear
from the ticker, they just stay there with the "offline" icon next to them. The
"Show offline buddies" setting in the main window (rightly) makes no difference
to the ticker behaviour.
Disabling and then re-enabling the buddy ticker resets the state back to the way
it should be.
This is using gaim-2.0.0-0.26.beta5.fc6 and the MSN protocol (though this bug
has been present in the previous few versions as well).
