long time user, haven't had any problems in ages. The past number of days my MIM, particularly one MSN account has become unusable due to instability. MIM 0.9.47. Windows 2000.
It's hard to describe the problem, and I can't force duplicate, it just seems to happen.
Start MIM up, MSN connects, contact list loads then when status changes etc....seems to freeze up (status change icon bar not changing) and then shortly after I Cannot receive messages! but I appear online. I just realized this now and am alarmed at not recieving messages. Then MIM becomes unstable to the point where have to force-kill the app and restart.
Suspected a corrupt database, so ran dbtool but didn't help.
Running same MSN account on different machine seems to work, so I dunno. I really don't want to recreate my profile file though. Many years of setup/data in there.
Here is a network log, didn't seem to even log the whole session until the error happened, but maybe it has something useful you can see.
