no chance to retype incorrect password

Bug #165225 reported by fantasai on 2007-11-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
pidgin (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

If I type my password wrong in pidgin, it disables my account. It should instead give me a chance to retype my password *at least three times* before it disables my account, preferably infinite with the option to cancel.

This is clearly an issue in pidgin 1:2.5.2-0ubuntu1, which is the Intrepid version, as well. If you type the password wrong, you have to modify the account, type the correct password, then activate the account from the menu, then type the correct password again. That is stupid. Is there a reason to this behavior?
