#24 Buddies with same sn's in yahoo and aim window bug

Chris Case

If i'm chatting to someone with an aol account named
foo, and somone with an yahoo! account named foo, the
message windows get confused, and everything i type in
both windows ends up in 1 window only.

So if i'm chatting with foo on aim and have a chat
window open, then i switch and start chatting to foo on
yahoo, all my messages to foo@yahoo appear in the aim
window instead of the yahoo window.

Also produces errors with encryption when iswitch back
and forth to the two different people (in the first
window only):

(23:15:55) Error in decryption- asking for resend...


(23:16:05) Last outgoing message not received properly-
(23:16:05) Resending...

I'm using the win32 gaim 0.71 with the 2.15 plugin
It is reproducable every time.

    Yes, this is a problem with the way the plugin keeps track
    of users (by name), and I'm not sure if there's a good way
    around it. Frankly, I'd been waiting until someone actually
    noticed it as a problem, since it doesn't seem to be very
    common. I guess it's time to take another look at it :)

    This is now fixed in CVS, and thus in future releases.

    Thanks for your patience.
