Reported by: angejudor Owned by: siege
Milestone: 2.10.7 Component: Sametime
Version: 2.8.0 Keywords: sametime chatroom crash windows

Description (last modified by angejudor)


I have a crash of the pidgin application when I accept a chatroom invitation (sametime protocol). It's occuring since our company upgraded the sametime server to the 8.5.1 level.

I'm using 2.8.0 pidgin release on windows.

pidgin.RPT attached to this message. pidgin.2.RPT attached to this message (generated with the 2.8.0 pidgin release).

Thanks for the help,


PS : on the debug info file I have the following lines :

Any chance of getting this fixed for the next release? Pidgen flat out does not work on 8.5.1 sametime servers unless a server side INI file setting is made and that's not a acceptable solution.

We are using Pidgin in linux and we face same issue.

Can someone please fix this at the earliest? We use pidgin as our SameTime? client and now it does not work.

BTW, is this an issue Pidgin or meanwhile library ?
