Adding New People or Group Makes Duplicates

Reported by: AkumaX Owned by: rekkanoryo
Milestone: Component: libpurple
Version: 2.5.4 Keywords:


I have two groups with the same name, one just randomly created itself. If I delete one, it also deletes the people from the original group. It does this if I add anyone to any group.

I've lost some people because of this, and don't quite remember who they were. Is there some way to get rid of the duplicate groups without any problems?

I believe Pidgin 2.6.0 coming real soon now will address this issue...

You need to delete one group from the blist.xml file manually when Pidgin is not running.

The changes in 2.6.0 have no impact on duplicate groups, that shouldn't be possible and it hasn't changed.
