#16572 new defect

Automatic reconnect unreliable for

Reported by: gessel Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: XMPP
Version: 2.10.11 Keywords: reconnect


My client connects to and I am on a highly unreliable network connection that stalls or drops many times a day (in Iraq). Typically the account will reconnect automatically but the account will not. I also link to Sometimes during reconnect facebook reports a fatal error (bad credentials) on reconnect.

  • Google reconnects automatically
  • Facebook I can reconnect to manually from the interface without a restart.
  • will not reconnect ("reconnecting" message persists indefinitely) unless I quit and restart, and then it reconnects immediately.

Pidgin 2.10.11 (libpurple 2.10.11)

I will amend with a debug log next time it fails. I note a number of reconnect failure tickets, but they all seem to be resolved by initiating a manual reconnect. This does not work with for me and automatic reconnect almost always works with with the same client at the same time.

I caught a disconnect, log file attached.

The buddy list UI read "Available - Connecting" while it was disconnected while Accounts-> read something like "nothing can be done."

Accounts->>disable and then Accounts->Enable Account-> restored connectivity.

Facebook and were connected normally and did not seem to be effected. But's server seems to drop (I believe on one of the very frequent local network fails) and then won't reconnect without manual intervention.
