Graphical bug.
« on: October 24, 2012, 07:33:23 AM »
Well this has happen quite a few time and it is very annoying.

On a fairly active channel you say something and the message does get sent, and is saved to the logs.
But you won't see it.

If this is normal chat:
<Guest12> Hello
<You> Hi
<Guest24> Hey

Then sometimes this happens:
<Guest12> Hello
<Guest24> Hey

While this happens this is what the logs say:
<Guest12> Hello
<You> Hi
<Guest24> Hey


In conclusion: Others see your message, you don't.


This is on IceChat RC 5.0
I may not be perfect, but parts of me are excellent

So you do not see the message at all, or is it you are looking back in the scroll buffer and have noticed it has disappeared?

It does not appear simply, it has never happened when scrolling up/down

Thanks, I'll see what could be causing it. Should be a fun one to try and narrow down.

Okay now this time it was different:
<You> Hi
* <Guest19> quit channel #electronics


But this is what actually happened:
* <Guest16> joined channel #electronics
<You> Hi
* <Guest19> quit channel #electronics


From what I can see the timing between messages for this to occur is 0-5 seconds.

Just curious as to how often it is happening, for me to try and narrow down the issue.

It appears each 2-3 days when running the client 24/7.

As a sidenote; My windows installation broke 2 days ago. It may be related due the timing of issues.

I haven't tried unloading that plugin and i haven't seen this problem in a week now.

Unloading it had no effect on the other highlight issue mentioned here: http://www.icechat.net/forums/index.php?topic=1661.msg6926#msg6926

I am having a very hard time replicating this issue. Spent over an hour, and I did not find any issues.
I need something that can cause this problem more consistently, or I am just chasing ghosts.

Do you notice the problems in your channel log only?
Have you also opened debug.log, used the debug, and see the extra lines there as well?

Also, how do you notice the problem is occuring?
Do you have 2 different clients open, and see it happen right away, or look in the channel log, and see the line is missing later on?

I'm only running a single client.

Last seen this issue today.

Unloading highlight plugin does not make a difference

It's a problem that's hard to trace, as today, the messages was sent while this happened but it wasn't logged to errors.log or the channel logs (and i still couldn't see the message I sent.)

Could not find the file debug.log yet either. However, I have found out that this is only something that happens when you chat normally. I have not seen this in a query, but it have never occurred on action messages.

I'll keep updating the topic when I find something.

Is this happening when you are sending messages, or other channel messages coming through?

It only happens when I send my messages sometimes

Found something in the console logs though:

Code: [Select]

Oh, that is quite an interesting error.
That would most certainly cause a problem with a message not sending.

How are you moving between tabs?
