Bug Description

Binary package hint: kmess

The default install package for KMess (Version 2.03) in Kubuntu 10.04 logs all chat activity for the user in ~/.xsession-errors. This includes the entire MSN contact list along with all chat correspondence and status updates.

I've already contacted the kmess developers and they informed me that the package must have been compiled in debug mode. See for this.
