     Type:  patch    |     Status:  new
Milestone:           |  Component:  IRC
  Version:  2.10.9   |   Keywords:  irc user name
 At [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/1325], it was reported
 that Pidgin leaked:
 * The OS's user name (used in realname by default)
 * Usage of libpurple on identname
 The attached patch fixes the above by reusing the user name, instead of
 using {{{g_get_user_name()}}} or {{{IRC_DEFAULT_ALIAS}}}.
