#12059 closed defect (out of date)

Wrong online user count in groups

Reported by: poizon Owned by: QuLogic
Milestone: Component: MSN
Version: 2.7.0 Keywords: msn


To reproduce the bug:

  1. count the online users in a group (read the group tooltip or collapse the group)
  2. you need an msn user in this group, who listens music (for example, a pidgin user with musictracker plugin) and changes status from offline/hidden to online/busy/away
  3. count the online users again: the user, who listens music, is not counted as online user
  4. move this user tho another group: the wrong online count 'moves' with the user to the new group

(sorry for my english)

I have applied a patch, which really fixes #12050 (7786ed6f7931081801ff5a3435820ed6f90ba2ca), but the online buddy count problem still exists. Is this really a duplicate?

Maybe. Maybe not.

I cannot reproduce on MTN.

  • Status changed from pending to new

I have created a debug log:

  • I added myself (xxxxxxxx@… in the log) to my buddy list, and started a music in Amarok.
  • After the musictracker plugin changed my status (the music icon showed up in the buddy list after my name), i changed my status to invisible, so the test buddy is now 'offline' on my buddy list. (I know, it's a third party plugin, but formerly i was able to reproduce this bug without musictracker on pidgin 2.6.x and i don't have 2 accounts + 2 pidgins for this debug.)
  • Now i started logging.
  • I changed my status to Busy.
  • The online count is now wrong in my group.
  • After few seconds i stopped logging. (I have deleted from the log the 'musictracker' and 'MPRIS' lines, but if you need them, i can attach the full log.)

Closing all MSN tickets, since it has been removed in pidgin 2.12.0 after being broken for a couple of years (see The skypeweb plugin can be used as an alternative (yes, it supports MSN logins too)

If this issue is still present in any other protocols supported by pidgin, please leave a comment and we will reopen it.
