#15502 new defect

IRC topic set by self triggers alert

Reported by: jaraco Owned by: elb
Milestone: Component: IRC
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Freakazoid, StrangeCharm


I'm using a pre-release build of 2.10.7, and I notice there's a new feature for the IRC client - the topic is displayed in the chat window each time one joins the channel.

It appears, however, as if that 'topic' message is treated like any other message. In particular, if it contains the username of the current user (which it will if it was set by the same username), it triggers the alert sound and status indicator, making it appear as if there are outstanding unread messages on that channel.

This is particularly annoying for someone like myself who has set the topic on several channels. Every time my internet connection bounces or I suspend and resume my laptop, pidgin reconnects, rejoins the channels, and then triggers alerts for all the channels on which I've set the topic.

It would be nice for this behavior to be addressed before the release of 2.10.7.
