#6443: Repair of Corrupt blist.xml
Reporter:  argh    |       Owner:  lschiere    
    Type:  defect  |      Status:  new         
Priority:  minor   |   Component:  unclassified
 Version:  2.4.3   |    Keywords:  blist.xml

 Somehow my blist.xml file became corrupted so that a group name looks like

 ''group name='uBusiness'''

 This causes pidgin to display the following message:

 '''Error Reading blist.xml

 '''An error was encountered reading your buddy list.  They have not been
 loaded, and the old file has been renamed to C:\Users\my

 When I edit blist.xml and remove the ''u'' characters and save it,
 pidgin loads without the error, however, the blist.xml file is re-
 corrupted and a restart produces the same error.

 Any ideas on how to correct this?

 Thank you.
