Description (last modified by Veveve)

Problem:
Pidgin hangs with 100% processor usage for a limited amount of time (30 seconds... 1 minute... or more)

When it occurs:

  • When i hover the mouse pointer on a (on only a) BUDDY in my list (yahoo protocol)
  • When i send CTRL+M -> enter BUDDY's ID -> OK [this will cause an IM window to show up]
  • When i'm tring to double-click the BUDDY's icon / id / name in my list in order to send a message to this BUDDY
  • When i'm tring to open the main Piding window (the one with the contacts) IF BUDDY is online


Hm... i think all the actions regarding this user will cause pidgin to hang...
This user is using Yahoo Messenger version 9.0.02162

!! Workaround

  • Never hover the mouse over the BUDDY
  • Uncheck "show buddy details" from the menu Buddies -> Show -> Buddy Details (this way the details from the BUDDY will not be shown [like avatar and status])
  • Uncheck "show detailed information" from Tools -> Preferences -> Conversations -> Show Detailed Information


Hm... Pidgin will now run as it should be... I can send / receive messages to/from BUDDY without hanging :)

Hm... it seems that removing the BUDDY from the list and then adding him again (with all the confirmations needed) fixes this permanently

  • Resolution set to out of date
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing all yahoo bugs since the yahoo implementation in pidgin no longer works, and the new protocol is completely different. See the funyahoo++ third party plugin for an alternative.

If this still applies to other parts of pidgin, leave a comment and we'll reopen.
