Pidgin ICQ/AIM too frequent login

Description

Hi,

I'm using Pidgin 2.10.3 (libpurple 2.10.3) in Ubuntu. I'm unable to connect to ICQ/AIM in Pidgin (and also empathy).

In the original setting it reports: """ You have been connecting and disconnecting too frequently. Wait ten minutes and try again. If you continue to try, you will need to wait even longer. """

I found a forum entry suggesting to use modified settings: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1944629

When I disable the client login option as suggested in the forum I get: """ ACCOUNTNR disabled Unknown reason """

after much searching (and finding similar reports years old) I found a fix (not to be confused with solution):

  • login.icq.com (instead of slogin.oscar.aol.com)
  • disable encryption
  • disabled client login

So the problem seems to be the combination of encryption and login server ...

Thank you in advance.

P.S. For completeness: I'm traveling upstream with this bug for some time now: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=675969 https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/empathy/+bug/993952
