#4481 new defect

Notification plugin's "Insert count of new messages..." breaks when buddy starts typing again

Reported by: dolphinling Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: plugins
Version: 2.3.1 Keywords:


The Notification Plugin provides an option to "Insert count of new messages into window title". This option works, but when the buddy starts typing again, the count disappears.

This is a regression from gaim 1.x, but it has been this way in every version of 2.x that I've used (including betas, IIRC).

I have been wondering why the notifications were going away... grr..... makes it hard to remember to open a conversation that is minimized if its notification number is gone and the app bar isn't highlighted as needing attention.

So confirmed by my also. I am using windows xp, pidgin 2.3.1

Since the title modification options were added to the plugin pidgin has had changes which cause it to update the window title more often, whenever pidgin updates the window title the additions caused by the message notification plugin are over-ridden. I don't have a good solution for this yet, though it has been complained about for a while. In part because I really want to go through and make pidgin not update the title so often and in part because modifying the window title really isn't something we can count on.
