Summary: Conversations logged into the wrong file, "crosstalk"

Initial Comment:
 I was chatting with a friend (call him "A") and another friend ("B") sent me a 
message. Later I look in my logs with B, and I see some of the things I said to 
and from A in that file! And even some system log entries (someone going 
offline, that someone being C).

 I also looked into my logs with B (using a web browser since it's HTML) and I 
see some of things A said ended up there.

 It feels like Gaim (or somebody) is mixing up the file-handles, badly. This is 
on Windows 2000 (NTFS), And yes, my logs directory is pretty large. Anyone care 
to venture a guess as to what might be happening?

Not just a Windows issue. This also happens to me running 2.0.0 beta5 on
Fedora2. Frequently the tail end of a conversation is just missing (not
showing up in any log file), but sometimes it is written to the log file of
another conversation.

For people I chat with frequently, I often leave the conversation windows
open in tabs, with my friends disconnecting and reconnecting several times
in the same conversation window.

I've had the same issue. I have Windows XP Pro and was online with both my
AIM and Yahoo accounts. My logs are saved as text. I cut and pasted the
conversations in the right logs and found that some of them were missing.
Most of the non-missing logs were in a log of someone I was talking to at
the same time. I didn't find the missing logs. I don't know if they ended
up on earlier logs or just disappeared. I checked logs of everyone I talked
to that day. As I look at my logs a lot, I haven't use GAIM for anything
but AIM since. So I only have a this one occurrence to report.

I can confirm this (I am on linux). I haven't seen any pattern for this
bug showing up.
