#15042 closed defect (duplicate)

Auto-login with invisible status notifies other YM contacts.

Reported by: george Owned by:
Milestone: Component: Yahoo!/Yahoo! JAPAN
Version: 2.10.3 Keywords: login invisible status


Pidgin: 2.10.3 and 2.7 Platform: Ubuntu 11.04 Protocol: Yahoo

I use pidgin with an yahoo account and the majority of my buddies are using Yahoo Messenger.


  1. In preferences I check "Use status from last exit" or set "Status to apply at startup" = Invisible
  2. I set pidgin to auto connect at startup
  1. I go invisible and close pidgin -> last status = invisible
  1. On another computer using Yahoo Messenger one of my buddies is watching his contacts list
  1. I start Pidgin which auto connects or simply connect

  1. What happens: My buddy receives a notification that "my_nickname is now offline" although I never appeared online/available in his list before this. (the buddies using Pidgin are not notified)
  2. What should happen: I connect invisible without notifying anyone about that

I noticed this bug with Pidgin 2.7 too(that's why i upgraded my version) and it seems no one filled a ticket for exact this specific situation.
