Pidgin user status detection broken on recent sametime servers (meanwhile)
|Reported by:||phil||Owned by:||siege|
As per sf.net defect #1626349:
The meanwhile plugin has stopped reporting correct online status for those on users contact lists since server side upgrades occurred (new version of IBM/Lotus sametime server was installed).
This occurs with the latest gaim 2.0 beta 6.
The problem seems to be that if a user comes online while you are online, it is OK, but if they are already online before you sign in, you don't get their initial status properly. You end up having conversations with people who are marked offline on your contact list.
Reported by multiple users. In my particular case Gaim/Pidgin? is unusable and I have had to revert to the official sametime client.
