Where did my buddy go

Hi Billy. I think I have got around the problem. I upgraded from 2.1.0 
to 2.3.1 and the problem has gone away. I can now drag in and out of 
contacts with no trouble at all. Everything else on the PC is the same 
- I didn't even have to reboot.

With the old version the problem was like you describe. When I tried 
to drag the buddy out of the contact there was no floating rectangle. 
Nothing happened at all. The system is Windows XP - standard with no 
fancy desktop features.

I read all the release notes for the versions between the old and new 
and I couldn't see anything about a bug like this. Anyway, I'm very 
happy now. Thanks for your help.   - Bob

I just want to clarify.  Are you saying that after you depress your
left mouse button over the buddy, and move the mouse, you do not get a
floating rectangle form a buddy that was part of a contact?

It's always a good idea to stay current.  It sounds like it might be a
gtk bug if anything.  Are you using windows?  Do you have any special
desktop modifications like "alternate shells" or "windows blinds"?
