Renaming groups doesn't work sometimes

Reported by: chemistrydioxide Owned by:
Milestone: Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.4.2 Keywords: groups renaming


Sometimes, renaming buddy groups doesn't work, i. e. the following issue just occurs sometimes.

When renaming groups is broken, hitting F2 or clicking the context-menu entry results in collapsing or expanding the group, but the group name doesn't become editable.

When I hit the right and the left key, the group selection changed (The dotted line showed up) and then it worked: I clicked "rename" and it worked.

After this, I tried several times to rename different groupsand it worked everytime. I didn't manage to break it again.

I suppose that some people are unable to reproduce the problem because it just happens sometimes, not always.

Im using Pidgin 2.4.2, Debian Lenny (testing), KDE 3.5.9, 1:7.3+10 and Kernel 2.6.24-1-486.

Does this issue still exist in 2.5.0?

This issue does still exist in 2.5.2.

I did the following steps to reproduce the issue, but I'm not shure whether this is exactly what is neccessary to cause this issue.

  1. Make Pidgin connect on startup.
  2. run/restart Pidgin
  3. Click the first group to select it

4. Hit F2 and nothing happens

  1. Hit F2 again and it works as it should, the group enters editing mode.
  2. Hit F2 again and it works again - the group is now leaving editing mode again. But at the same time, the group gets expanded.

I thought the behavior had improved because it was now working when trying it for the second time. But another time when I had this issue with 2.5.2, it didn't go away when trying to rename the group. Instead, I needed to focus the second group and then again the first group to make it work.
