#1061 closed defect (pebkac)

Trailing whitespace in jabber messages.

When I start a conversation with somebody, 1) messages sent until I get a reply have trailing whitespace. or when the other person starts a conversation with me, 2) and the messages I send until I get another response from the person have trailing whitespace.

The messages sent thereafter are fine. I use rcirc, but issue happens with irssi too. The other people usually use gmail web client, but this happens while they're offline and not using any client too. These are normal messages, no OTR is involved.

A example message with the problem was


which shows the amount of whitespace.

BitlBee really doesn't do this by itself, this has to be OTR. You can just check whether the "otr" command does anything. Or maybe you accidentally still have the OTR module loaded in your IRC client?

Hmm, it was OTR. I had to set otr_policy as manual.
