pidgin not operable in F11
Last modified: 2009-04-21 10:53:32 EDT
Description of problem:
When starting pidgin, it pops up the buddy list and the buddy ticker, then it loops for ever and ever. Then I tried the same loggin in into a new user without a configured pidgin, but it loops too. Un- and re-installing pidgin did not help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Each time I try.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start pidgin with an abled account
2.Buddy list and Buddy ticker appear, but they are not sensitive. Pidgin loops in user mode
Can talk with buddy

gnome bugreport after spinning pidgin receives SIGINT
getting same behaviour, cpu pinned at near 100%, strace on the spinning process implies no system calls, it's stuck in userspace.
ltrace pidgin seems to stalls at the following...
g_direct_hash(0x91b0110, 364, 0, 0x83c1a4, 0x708cf7) = 0x91b0110
g_direct_hash(0x91eda20, 0xbc7400, 0, 0x83c1a4, 0x708cf7) = 0x91eda20
g_direct_hash(0x91ac0b8, -1, 0, 0x83c1a4, 0x708cf7) = 0x91ac0b8
g_direct_hash(0x900ecf8, 0x83c928, 0xbf850b28, 0x76f88a, 0x8f6bc88) = 0x900ecf8
<... gtk_window_present resumed> ) = 1
<... purple_blist_set_visible resumed> ) = 0
purple_debug_info(0x810592a, 0x8106da4, 0, 0xca4e9ec1, 0xbf850e78) = 0
but cpu is still pinned at 100%.
after receiving SIGINT, process unfreezes to crash giving more traditional bug
dialog, bug report attached.
Do you have nautilus-sendto plugin installed and loaded? This could be a duplicate of bug #496367
After removing nautilus-sendto (as described in bug #496367), my problems disappeared too.
