Description (last modified by wilmer)

(Please note I am very noobie with this)

I am using this with mirc and using a script. I have set it to log in and all of that good stuff, it works perfectly fine. I have set "set handle_unknown add" but when somebody adds me I get something similar to this printed to me:

<@root> msn - New request: The user _ () wants to add you to his/her buddy list. <@msn> yes <@root> You can use the yes/no commands to accept/reject this request. <@root> msn - Accepted: The user _ () wants to add you to his/her buddy list.

Basically telling me it has accepted the contact. However, the contact that has added me sees me as Offline.. Once I relog the MSN account I appear online to them.

Do you know how I can fix this?

Bug in the MSN module probably. Its contact list handling has become very complicated. Not sure what could be wrong, I've implemented what I found on the reverse engineering websites. :-/

BTW I can't reproduce this from Pidgin to BitlBee. Contact shows up online immediately.
