Summary: AIM Removed Users Showing Back Up

Initial Comment:
Anytime I remove/delete a user off my AIM group from
within Gaim v0.74 they are added back to my list
somehow. Is this something that needs to be done in AIM
only? If so please let me know my AIM name is
EntityPacket. This happens in both Linux and Windows
and seems to be limited to AIM only.

Do you still have this problem?  AIM buddy list problems seem to all be
fixed now.

For what is worth, this is still reproducible in GAIM 0.79.

Just upgraded to Debian's 0.76-1.
The bug hasn't been fixed for me... neither removing users
nor groups causes them to be really removed from the server.
Note that they are indeed removed from the blist.xml file.

Heeeyyyyyy you guys should try Gaim 0.76.  It handles AIM
buddy lists better.  Let me know if you still have problems.
 Thanks!

I don't commute, I use this account exclusively from GAIM,
and I can reproduce this problem with ICQ (over OSCAR, I
don't use AIM). In my case, the --incorrectly-- removed
users are moved to a particular group. I think it's worth
noting that I can't remove groups, either.

Uhm... I tried sniffing the connection while I asked GAIM to
remove one of these users, and I got the following on the
debug window:
blist: Removing '<UIN>' from buddy list.
oscar: ssi: deleting buddy <UIN> from group <group>

But it yielded no traffic on port 5190.
I then tried sending a dummy message on ICQ and it did
generate output on the sniffer, so I know it's working.

I'm using GAIM 0.75 as packaged in Debian testing.

Do you use AIM in more than one place?

Do you alternate between using Gaim on multiple machines or
under multiple operating systems?  I have this kind of
problem because I run Gaim both at home and at work, and
whenever I delete a user on my home PC he gets re-added
automatically when I go back to work.  Gaim keeps a local
copy of your buddy list, and when you sign on to your AIM
account any buddies stored locally that have been deleted
remotely are re-added to your account.

In this specific case it turns out to be an annoyance, but I
think it reflects a Gaim design issue more than anything
else.  When designing Gaim's buddy list, the developers
chose to store your buddies locally; so when you fire up
Gaim and there's a discrepancy between both the local list
and the remote list, Gaim chooses to add missing buddies
from the local list to the remote list (and vice versa) to
resolve the discrepancy.  Better behavior, I think, might be
to just add buddies to the local list and not alter the
remote list unless the user specifically requests it (but
this may be difficult to do from the prpl's perspective).

If this is a separate issue, disregard the rant (this is
just something I've noticed about gaim for a while but have
never had the opportunity to post).
