#4587: Yahoo idle status change doesn't work
Reporter:  kmc74   |       Owner:  marv  
    Type:  defect  |      Status:  new   
Priority:  minor   |   Component:  Yahoo!
 Version:  2.2.1   |    Keywords:  idle  
 Pending:  0       |  
 Version: 2.2.1
 Platform: Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon

 In preferences Status/Idle tab i have:
 Report idle time: Based on keyboard or mouse use
 CHECKED Change status when idle
 Minutes before becoming idle: (have tried 1-5)
 Change status to: Away

 After the idle time is up it seems to work properly as the status on the
 bottom of the buddy list changes to "Away" and the icon in the system tray
 also changes to away.

 HOWEVER, the status doesn't seem to propogate to the server/clients as my
 status never changes to
 "Away" on their lists. I have verified this with pidgin running on other
 computers with my yahoo ID added in the buddy list.

 The away status is properly seen when i manually change it however it is
 not when supposed set by idle time. I have attached the log of the idle
 function changing the status to away and me typing on the keyboard
 resulting in my status changing back to "Available".
