Summary: ICQ should not switch Privacy on Status change
This is half a feature req, half a bug report - and I
also only try to suggest a resolution, not patching it,
as I'm not familiar with GAIM codebase.
So, the current GAIM 2.0 cvs situation is the
following: if I switch from one ICQ status to another
(say to DND from Occupied), my ICQ privacy status
changes to "Block only the users below". As that list
is empty for me, everyone is suddenly allowed to
Well I think the culprit is somewhere in this region:
In my opinion the privacy status set in the else branch
should be something selected by the user, not something
always chosen by default.
I changed the else branch to "account->perm_deny =
GAIM_PRIVACY_ALLOW_BUDDYLIST;" for myself, but it
really should be a preference somewhere.
Also on a separate note, it would be nice to implement
disabling the status display on the ICQ webpages.

Closing this for the reasons mentioned in my previous comment. Better
privacy support is on our list of things to do, so there's no need for
another feature request about it. And the ability to disable the status
display on the ICQ webpages will exist in Pidgin 2.0.0, once it's released.
It can be toggled from Accounts->ICQ #->Set Privacy Options.
