Pidgin Off The Record Plugin Issue

skenigma
Hello,

If you use the Off The Record Plugin for Pidgin, and have "Automatically initiate private messaging" checked you may run into this issue.

While sending SMS messages from inside Pidgin, or responding to SMS messages from pidgin your messages will have extra white spaces added to the end of the message. such as the example below.

"This is a test Message \u0009 \u0009\u0009\u0009\u0009 \u0009 \u0009 \u0009 \u0009 \u0009 \u0009 \u0009\u0009 \u0009"

All of the \u0009 chars are white-space characters that tries to identify if the opther person is also using Off the Record.

To fix this, disable the "Automatically initiate private messaging"

You will still be able to enable Off the Record sessions with your other contacts, however do not use it with your SMS contacts.

Thanks for the details.
I have changed GVMax so it will look for that pattern and remove it if found.
