#7298 new defect

buddy status (online/offline) not updated

Reported by: cptiglo Owned by: elb
Milestone: Component: SILC
Version: 2.5.1 Keywords:


starting pidgin the buddy list gets initialized correctly e.g. the status displayed in the buddy list corresponds to the real status of the users (online/offline).

the problem is that users, which change their status (go online/offline) while my own pidgin is running are not getting updated in the buddy list (their status).

so some users, which were online at startup go offline and you can't talk to them though they are flagged online. Vice versa online users are displayed offline which leads to the special delight to chat with zombie-offline-users.

I can confirm that this still happens in Pidgin 2.5.4 on Windows XP. I was going to set up a SILC server at work so office workers could talk to each other but this bug seriously crushes that plan...
