Package: kmess
Version: 2.0.3-2
Severity: important

After authenticating (successfully) with the messenger server and fetching the 
contact list, kmess gives the error "network connection lost" and logs out
(and then tries to log in again) before the contact list is shown.

Running kmess from the terminal gives the output:
11.176> kmess(6953) RoamingService::updateProfile: Missing profileResourceId, 
not updating profile 
11.177> kmess(6953) RoamingService::updateProfile: Missing profileResourceId, 
not updating profile 
11.414> kmess(6953) MsnNotificationConnection::slotError: MSN Notification 
Connection error type 4 : "The remote host closed the connection"

I expect this bug to be related to changes in the messaging protocol and that 
it has been solved in the latest version ( of kmess, available in 
Wheezy (testing). At least that is what some googleing suggests. I have not 
confirmed this though, since I do not wish to install the testing version of 
libqtcore4 in my Squeeze system.

The connection problem also occurs in kopete, which connects to the messenger
server using the API found in the package libmsn0.3. More on the problems of 
libmsn0.3 can be found in bug #659555.
