#7570 new defect

Private chats via XMPP MUC can yield private chats instead of private chats via MUC

Reported by: akrherz Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: XMPP
Version: 2.5.2 Keywords:
Cc: datallah


Not sure when this changed, but when in a XMPP MUC, clicking on a username in the room list used to initiate a private chat via the MUC. (Talking with their room handle)...

If either party is able to see the real JIDs in the room, pidgin will now initiate a truely private chat with the bare JID and not the room handle via the MUC.

The issue is this situation, where the room consists of admins and general users. The admins can see the general users JIDs, but not vice versa.

If the general user initates a private chat via the MUC, they have given a private chat via the MUC against their handle.

If the admin initates it, then their JID is exposed to the general user in the form of a 1 on 1 chat.

While I can see this new feature as a nice addition, we would rather see the 1on1 MUC chat supported.

Sorry if I am loose with the terminology here...

For clarity, the issue here is that if the non-admin starts the chat everything works as expected, but if the admin starts the chat pidgin 'leaks' his real jid to the non-admin.

Any further thoughts on this? This come up as a major issue with our deployment of Pidgin. Sorry that I can't offer a patch to resolve this and I very much appreciate your consideration.

Sorry again to bump this. This issue will keep us at older versions of Pidgin due to the JID leaking possibilities :(
