Comment 2 Christopher Blizzard 2002-06-04 22:28:25 EDT
This is ia64?  Also, what happens if you try one of the newer versions in the
tree?  That version is pretty old.
Comment 3 Ben Levenson 2002-06-10 13:07:52 EDT
the problem still occurs with the newer versions (i tried 0.58-2 from the 
rawhide trees -- actually, the newer versions are worse. they start up, but
hang when I try to log on). 
the same problems occur on alpha.
Comment 4 Ben Levenson 2002-08-01 16:19:57 EDT
fixed in gaim-0.59-0.7.2 and gaim-0.59-0.7.1
