#8104 closed defect (duplicate)

Message text selected in "account has disconnected" dialog

Reported by: jerith Owned by:

When an account disconnects (usually because of a bad network connection), the pidgin_mini_dialog at the bottom of the buddy lists is displayed with the text selected.

This means that displaying the dialog causes the message text to be dumped into the X select buffer, overwriting whatever is already in there and breaking copy/paste behaviour in X.

I am unfamiliar with both GTK and pidgin's code, but I strongly suspect the problem is the one discussed in the mailing list thread at
