After I connect via bitlbee to skyped, it hangs with message in debug log:

2012-05-24 16:33:47: Warning, receiving 1024 bytes failed ([Errno 1] _ssl.c:1359: error:140943FC:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert bad record mac).
2012-05-24 16:33:48: Warning, sending 'USER someuser ONLINESTATUS ONLINE
' failed ([Errno 9] Bad file descriptor). count=3

And continues sending out the second message, without responding to client requests.

Problem there is gobject-specific code-path in global send() function that

  • Keeps retrying for 10s regardless of error (e.g. even if socket was closed), while errors are actually should be fatal there - it's a blocking socket, there's no EAGAIN, but feel free to correct me here.
  • Doesn't close the socket even after 10 (pointless!) retries and signals no error to the other code, so it goes on happily assuming connection is fine.

I've fixed the issue (among others) in my kinda-fork here and will attach the patch to the ticket. Anyone who use it, please be warned that it's in no way an official fix and all the usual "at your own risk", "don't bug upstream about it", etc rules apply.
