Pidgin unresponsive (high CPU) when XMPP (gtalk/facebook) send or receive
|Reported by:||amishmm||Owned by:||EionRobb|
I am using Fedora 10 with Pidgin 2.6.6.
From 1 or 2weeks I am noticing that Pidgin becomes unresponsive when chatting with XMPP (I use gtalk and facebook) accounts.
CPU usage increases only when a message arrives or I send a message (i.e. after pressing enter key). Pidgin stays in unresponsive state till the message is displayed in the window, afterwards Pidgin again becomes normal. i.e. Pidgin works normal as long as no message is received or is sent on XMPP
I also have MSN and Yahoo accounts but this problem does not happen with those accounts.
This bug is also reported by others:
Here: (see last comment)
and here: (ticket was closed though as Fedora no more supports F10)
This bug cud be in previous versions of Pidgin but I started using XMPP after Facebook launched XMPP support. Earlier I thought it may be Facebook problem but this happens with Gtalk too.
Please look in to it.
