Current Track version 2.0.0cvs (from Jan 31st. I think).
iTunes 6.01
Windows XP Pro
Gaim 2 beta 2

I'm having an intermittent problem whereby when the
track changes, the Gaim UI freezes up and has to be
restarted.

It doesn't seem to occur on every track change, but it
occurs frequently.

After the track changes, all UI in all of Gaim's
windows ceases to render and leaves a white canvas.
Oddly, it still response to clicks but no UI is
rendered. For example, I can click in the position of
the main menu and a solid white rectangle appears where
the menu should be. I can open the plugins and
preferences windows by clicking in the white rectangle,
but these windows also don't render their content.

Unfortunately, I know absolutely nothing about GTK, so
I can't offer even vague theories on why this happens.
I hope it's a known issue though, to give some hope in
tracking it down!

I have the following other plugins enabled (all
2.0.0beta2):

* Buddy State Notification
* History
* Message Notification
* Release Notification
* WinGaim Options

    marking fixed and closing out bug. I've been running the fix
    version for a while now and it's much smoother when updating
    the track and icon... and i haven't experienced any UI weirdness

    I can confirm that this is fixed on the install the bug was
    found on, too.

    Thanks.
