ICQ auto reconnects even when you signed in on another location

I'm running a version of new-jabber.

When i connect to my ICQ account on gaim, BitlBee auto reconnects to icq again after my given interval. I known MSN doesn't reconnect when connected on another location. ICQ should behave like this too.

P.S. 1.1dev should be added to the Version dropdown...

Can you rephrase that? I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about...

Yes, good idea, will do. :-)

from what I can tell, he is saying that when he gets onto gaim, bitlbee is knocked off? (does ICQ do that? I've never used it.) and then after a given interval, bitlbee reconnects to icq knocking gaim off?

and it doesn't happen with MSN

Okay, I don't know why I didn't get this the first time I read this report because it's indeed pretty clear.

Anyway, BitlBee would certainly do this right, if this was possible. However, the OSCAR module doesn't detect this problem yet.

Also, this is *exactly* the reason why auto_reconnect is disabled by default.
