#1066 closed defect (obsolete)

Randomly appearing skype contact info

Reported by:… Owned by: Miklos Vajna
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Skype Version: devel
Keywords: userinfo skype info Cc:
IRC client+version: Client-independent Operating System: Linux
OS version/distro: Arch Linux


From time to time, I see this in my &bitlbee channel:

<root> skype - Contact Information
<root> Skype Name: REDACTED
<root> Personal Information
<root> Birthday: September 07, 1990
<root> Age: 23
<root> Gender: Unknown

This happens out of the blue, without me doing any command or anything, and with different contacts. In the skyped debug output, I just see the usual USERINFO lines, nothing special. What's kinda interesting though is that it sometimes says SEX MALE and sometimes SEX UNKNOWN for the same contact there.

I'm using the latest bzr version (993).

Could you attach the 'skyped -d -n' output when this happens? Just redirect the output of skyped to a file -- I would like to have something I can replay using 'skyped -m', then fixing the plugin itself will be much easier.

this is the output in the bitlbee window this time:

17:35:24 <root> skype - Contact Information
17:35:24 <root> Skype Name: Alice
17:35:24 <root> Mobile Phone: <redacted>
17:35:24 <root> Personal Information
17:35:24 <root> Contacts: 82
17:35:24 <root> Local Time: 18:35:24
17:35:24 <root> Gender: Female
17:35:24 <root> Region: Baden Würtemberg

And the skyped output around this timestamp:

I don't have any groupchats open at all (but had problems with crashes with them before, so there might be some leftovers I'm afraid...) and I never requested any userinfo, so I'm really unsure about what's going on there.

I have a slightly different setup now, and it also occurs there.

Old setup: Bitlbee (r993) running on Arch Linux, Skype and skyped running on Arch as well New setup: Bitlbee (r996) running on Arch Linux, Skype and skyped running on Debian Wheezy

Is the vs a typo? If not, it would make sense to check the contents of those 3 revisions. ;-)

Hm, I'm not sure anymore, it probably is though. But as said, the problem occures in both setups, so that probably wouldn't make sense.
