Description Clark Williams 2008-06-26 16:17:18 EDT
Description of problem:
pidgin running with AIM, Gtalk and IRC connections to internal RH and freenode.
The freenode connection will drop and then reconnect. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pidgin-libnotify-0.13-3.fc9.x86_64
pidgin-2.4.2-1.fc10.x86_64
pidgin-otr-3.2.0-1.fc10.x86_64

How reproducible:
sporadic repeats. No user-interaction required to cause.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start pidgin and connect to freenode
2. Wait for disconnect

Additional info:

I notice that pidgin really doesn't like the welcome info sent by the freenode
servers:

additional info, this affects the pidgin delivered with F9 as well.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2008-11-20 17:06:46 EST
Is this still an issue now with pidgin-2.5.2?  I don't see this behavior.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-11-25 21:28:30 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
