Summary: Yahoo "Not on server list"

Initial Comment:
Hi,

I'm a bit new to GAIM and noticed a weird issue with my
Yahoo profile after loging in to it via GAIM.

I noticed another bug on an old version of GAIM that
appears similar to my issue (I don't recall the bug ID).

Essential what seems to be happening is that when I
move Buddies between groups in the Buddy List windows,
they are either disappearing from view completely or
appear offline with a status of "not on server list".
(I haven't tried moving Buddies from my other
accounts--AOL, gmail, and MSN--so I don't know if the
problem is present there.)

Is there any additional information I can provide you
on this to help resolve it? Or anything I can do to
help isolate it?

Is there a temporary fix for this that will cause my
now missing Buddies to reappear in my Buddy List?

Now, all my yahoo contacts works, don't ask me why... It works since the
next session of my shifts that I explained in my previous comment.

Same problem with some Yahoo contacts, not everyones ;
Something interesting : normally, i class my contact in a personal group
in the display. I noticed that one of the yahoo contact, which bugs, works
correctly when I add the same name contact in the "contact" group (i
suppose the goup by default), in addition to my "personel" group. You can
try and if you are lucky it'll work. 
In my case, only one out of my 3 bugged yahoo contacts works with this
wheeze.

This is similar to the bug that I reported: 1584381

I do hope that it gets fixed, soon. I hate having to use
Y!IM to get buddies on my list correctly.

I have also observed this problem, though I hadn't sorted
out that moving between groups was a trigger for it.  It can
be worked around by disabling the account, using the
official Y!M client (eew) to re-add the buddy in the correct
group, then quitting and re-enabling the account in Gaim.

Thanks.

Just a note--since this issue effects one's ability to use
GAIM effectively (basic, essential features, that is), I
changed the priority to 7.

Please advise if this is not the correct way to go about
such a change in priority.

Discovered some additional symptoms related to this problem...

1) While the Yahoo Buddy that was moved to a different group
is no longer visible, if you highlight (with the mouse
cursor) the Buddies adjacent to its intended location, when
the description of the highlighted Buddy appears, you'll
also see a description of the Buddy that is otherwise not
visible in the Buddy List. This description, however,
matches the previous symptoms--that is, it shows the Buddy
as Offline and "Not on server list".

2) If you right-click a Buddy that's adjacent to the
intended location of the moved Yahoo Buddy, at the bottom of
the popup menu you'll see the option Expand below which
you'll see the problematic Yahoo Buddy. Clicking Expand will
make the previously non-visible Yahoo Buddy appear, but it
will still meet the previuos problem descriptions--Offline
and "Not on server list". The option to Expand is available
for this Yahoo Buddy regardless of the account type of the
adjacent Buddy--for example, I right clicked on an MSN Buddy
and had the option to Expand... My problematic Yahoo Buddy
appeared as a sub-item to my MSN Buddy.

I hope this is making sense--I'm a bit tired and so may not
be explaining in clearly enough. Feel free to let me know if
you require additional information regarding this problem.
