Current status (my impressions)
Well, the readme says it probably has bugs, and
I'd say that yes, it does.
Most obvious is the way
that both windows flicker insanely until I click on
either of them -the debug messages mention about
glade not being able to find the gnome libraries
(that's because I have no intention of installing
gnome), so perhaps that's related. There's also
mention of "could not find signal handler
'on_popup_group_activate'", which might make a
difference too, I don't know.
At least after I've
stopped it, the flickering doesn't return until the
next time I start the program.
Second problem, there's not much (none?) instructions,
and a lot of things in the UI are slightly ambiguous,
but that's not quite such an issue to me yet because
Thirdly, and most importantly, it will not
let me connect to the server I got the account on.
It seemed to let me create the account,
oddly. Another client connects to it without problems.

Possible clue is the message:
CRITICAL **: file lm-connection.c: line 1547
(lm_connection_set_proxy): assertion `proxy
!= NULL' failed
Which is strange, because I have "use proxy"
unselected. Anyway, I recognise this is
a relatively new project, at version
0.1.4.1 as I write this, so perhaps things like these
will improve in time. I hope so, because there don't
seem to be any decent Jabber clients
out there that I can use.
