#16252 new defect

Pidgin can't handle XML namespaces in message history

Reported by: __kdex Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: XMPP
Version: 2.10.9 Keywords: xmpp jabber history log xml html xhtml-im xhtml message history handle namespace namespaces


In XMPP stanzas, Pidgin will (on receiving the message) display the following stanza as "Hi" in a chat window.

<message type="chat" to="" from="" id="aaeebb00-0bdd-4266-96ee-daf32bc24efa-2B">
      <html xmlns="">
           <body xmlns="">

When the user views the chat history, however, the message goes down as:

<html xmlns=''>Hi

Note that for some obscure reason, the XML namespace from the HTML tag is included although it's not part of the message.

This bug causes plugins such as "History" to misbehave when trying to view the log of a previous conversation by opening up a buddy's chat window.
