#107 Problem with lock icon in v3.0Beta2


This isn't huge, but very annoying. When sending
encrypted messages on an MSN account with the default
smiley theme selected, the lock icon doens't show up in
front of the text. Instead, GENCRYPT: shows up as text
both when I send and receive from another user w/
gaim-encrypt. The problem here is that gaim takes the
last colon from GENCRYPT: and combines it with the
first letter of my or the senders text and creates an
emoticon with it. Very annoying. If I switch to
another smiley theme then this does not happen
(strange). Again, this only seems to happen on MSN
accounts. AIM is working fine for me.

    Hopefully a change (currently in CVS) which puts a space
    after GECRYPT: will make the smileys all work out correctly
    for MSN in the future. The lock icons on the front of lines
    will also become optional, so if nothing else, there will be
    a workaround.

    I'm expecting another Gaim beta soon, and a new
    Gaim-Encryption beta for it that will have the extra space
    (at least) in; perhaps the config necessary to make the lock
    icons optional as well. If this problem persists with
    GE-beta3, please reopen.

    I can confirm this. I reported this problem in the
    forums, but have not received any response:

    I can't reproduce this problem with the current CVS; I think
    that the addition of the space to the smiley text fixed the

    I'm waiting for the Gaim non-beta release to release the
    plugin again- probably around the end of this week.
