During a chat session with AIM, MSN, Yahoo, Google Talk, ICQ, & LJ chat
(livejournal's jabber) connected I primarily use AIM. Very frequently during
its use I will find that no one is replying to me on AIM. I have come to discover
that GAIM seems to be pretending to have maintained its connection to AIM.
When I message a bot like Smarterchild I get no reply just the same as I don't
get an away message when I message someone who is away. The only way I can
receive and send messages again is if I log-off AIM and log back on and even
then it's very temporary.
I've seen similar complaints in these forums of this in MSN (and I believe AIM)
with no answers or possible explanations.
Ubuntu Edgy, GAIM 2beta6, the debugging window doesn't catch anything I recognize
as being important even if I knew the exact moment I lost the connection.
