account-plugin-butterfly - delete contacts doesn't work

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
account-plugin-butterfly *any version* (even 0.4)
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. Login to MSN via butterfly plugin
2. Delete contact (msn contact)
4. Login again
Contact will not re-appear (shouldn't show up first case as they don't exist on
If using account-plugin-haze instead the contacts I've deleted on Live during
the years don't appear in the first case. The reason I'm trying to switch to
butterfly is that it seems to be the "standard" for Maemo 5 (it's a dependency
for "Extra protocol plugins for Maemo" (telepathy-plugin-extras?)).

Thanks for the info Andre.
There is already a bug report here ->
This is actually a bug in the maemo UI, which shows contacts in the publish
list while it should only show "stored" or "subscribe". There is an internal
bug about this and it should be fixed in an upcoming release.

Thanks for clarifying Oliver.
If it's a bug in the Maemo UI how come I'm not seeing this using the haze
plugin? Is it using some kind of workaround?
Possibly libpurple is already doing some kind of filtering, I'm not sure how it
I think this is actually 2 separate bugs.
Contacts deleted on the windows client and visible on maemo is due to the
official client behaving in a weird way.
The other problem is the impossibility to delete a contact using butterfly.
I wrote a fix for both bugs that hopefully will be released soon.

When will we see the big fixed version? I installed 0.7 and it has the same
bug. I tried 0.8 but unfortunately, it does not support video call, which is
my only reason for using this plugin instead of Haze.
Both of the fixes should be in the next public released version.

Any idea when that might be?
Also, another bug that I noticed is that sometimes it does not remember my
nickname and instead it just shows my email address when I sign in but after
few minutes it fixes itself.

Different issue. See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/page.cgi?id=bug-writing.html
This has been fixed in package
which is part of the internal build version
(Note: 2009/2010 is the year, and the number after is the week.)
A future public update released with the year/week later than this internal
build version will include the fix. (This is not always already the next public
Please verify that this new version fixes the bug by marking this bug report as
VERIFIED after the public update has been released and if you have some time.
To answer popular followup questions:
* Nokia does not announce release dates of public updates in advance.
* There is currently no access to these internal, non-public build versions.
A Brainstorm proposal to change this exists at
Created an attachment (id=2208) [details]
Updated Telepathy backend (version 0.4.59-1)
Actually the EDS telepathy backend is open source, so if you want you can try
installing the attached .deb that should solve the problem of the deleted MSN
contacts still visible on the N900.
Note that this is *not* an official release of this package; it has not been
tested on a released image but only in the internal private builds. Take a
backup before trying this as things could go horribly wrong. If that happens
you cannot blame neither me nor Nokia :P
I'd like to test your updated package, but where do I find the original one
(0.4.56-1) if I want to downgrade again?
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).
Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
It doesn't let me install the .deb file from comment #12, but it says:
"Incompatible application package."
