Description of problem:
I'm using Gaim to connect to Yahoo Messenger. It crashes all the time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open up gaim
2.Connect to Yahoo
Actual Results: It crashes
Expected Results: It shouldn't crash
I updated Gaim to 0.59.6 and it doesn't crash anymore.
They said something about a Yahoo bug that was fixed recently.
Please update Gaim to the most recent version.
This seems to be a duplicate of bug 76955.
Problem and fix both confirmed. It's pretty much unusable for the yahoo protocol
without the update.
