Bug Description

Not sure if this is a bug in either the MSN transport or Coccinella, but I don't have this bug for the AIM transport. When I register to the MSN transport, all contacts already on my test MSN account are showed in Coccinella with the full and ugly JID. So, instead of "<email address hidden>" I see things like "user%<email address hidden>".

In a situation like this it helps tremendously to study the xml I/O. Transports may play tricks and set the name element of the roster item to something automatically. A xml log reveals this. I think I display the bare (ugly) JID by default but haven't checked it.

Remember that I can't yet copy/paste from the XML console... ;-)

Oh, yes: you can see this bug in the latest video/screenshot tutorial. :-)

But either you run from a Terminal using
wish8.5
source Coccinella.tcl
or 2-click Wish and you get the console.
From both you may copy text.
Be sure that
set debugLevel 4
is set in Coccinella.tcl

Part of this problem is that they aren't using JID escaping: http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0106.html
If the JID had the proper escaping I get instead:

::Roster::GetDisplayName {user\<email address hidden>}
<email address hidden>

It would be possible with a hack but I don't think it is worth it. It is likely to create more problems. Better to stay with protocol definitions.

I created a page for "Coccinella" bugs like this one: http://coccinella.im/third-party-issues

Please add more when you discover them...oh yes, wasn't there an issue with the Tlen transport?
