Pidgin hangs when connecting to Openfire 3.10.3 or newer (Windows 7 x64)

Reported by: wroot Owned by: deryni

Version: 2.10.11 Keywords: hang freeze openfire windows


There was no such problem with Openfire 3.10.2 version. Starting with 3.10.3 (same with 4.0.0 Beta fresh install) Pidgin connects to a server, but after a few seconds its GUI freezes and it is then disconnected. GUI stays frozen and Pidgin's process cannot be killed via Task manager or other means other than restarting Windows.

It works fine when started via pidgin.exe -d 2>&1 > "%USERPROFILE%\debug.log" shortcut. And as it also do not crash, i can't provide debug or PRT file when it is in the forzen state.

There is probably some incompatibility between Pidgin and Openfire 3.10.3+ versions. Other clients work fine though. But this ticket is mainly about Pidgin's process hanging without a way to kill it on Windows.
