network-wide problems on Windows/Bonjour if a computer has non-ascii name

Reported by: rot13 Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: Bonjour
Version: 2.10.11 Keywords:


If a computer with non-ascii name goes online, all other Pidgin instances on the network misbehave and/or crash. It seems the problem only happens on Windows, and when using Pidgin version 2.7.4 or later. Earlier Pidgin versions are visible properly on the network and working fine, except they still misbehave if a "bad" version goes online.

Here's a video demonstrating the problem:
