System/Pidgin slowdown on filetransfer

Description

While transferring (mostly big) files, the system/pidgin slows down really much. The memory is not the problem, 'free' has good values. Even typing gets so slow that it is hardly usable.

I experienced this on many computers and my friend also has this issue.

Using Linux here, Ubuntu 7.04.

This problem still persists on Pidgin 2.1.1.

"Me too"...

I've seen this a few times now when sending files using jabber. I can type, but the characters only appear like, 15 seconds later. Not only pidgin is affected but the whole system, like switching windows etc. Tested with latest MTN now and still not fixed :(

Also confirmed with Pidgin 2.2.0 here.

Confirmed on 2.3.0 on WinXPsp2 Often I'm chatting with lot of my friends, at sometime, someone want to send a file to all of use. All the other can download the file in a few moments, I shold ask to send me by email... and is not a problem related to ADSL connection or provider, I tried different.

Replying to efa on this, and this:

It is unrelated. This ticket is about pidgin slowdown, the other one is about slow file transfers.

yes sorry, I had misunderstanded the bug description. To me the system and pidgin are always fast in response, but only file transfer is very slow.

Is this still an issue for you in Pidgin 2.5.8?
