#836 new defect

multiple jabber clients on the same account fight over OTR sessions

i've been told that this happens, i.e. people have one client at home and one at work. when OTR kicks in the home and work clients fight over who gets to establish the encrypted connection.

i need to try this myself, but reading up a bit on jabber's "resource" system makes it seem like we might just have to differentiate OTR connections by resource (in addition to user/protocol).

is there a reasonable way for the OTR plugin to determine the resource a jabber message is eventually going to be sent to?

This problem is addressed by libotr-4.0.0 (OTR protocol version 3) in the form of "instance tags". See #1004.
