    MSN unstable, status not changing, msgs not recieving/crashing

    hi there,

    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.


    Suggestions/ideas appreciated!

    I see only problem with avatar storage, and it does not cause any hanging... To fix it go to Windows Live website and delete (not change - delete) avatar from your profile. After that login into Miranda and manually set it. Although you tried to set avatar that many times that you exceeded some kind of monthly quota, so you might have to wait for the next once until set will work, might not.

    avatar setting? interesting, cause I have for many years now had it being auto updated from a webcam capture every few minutes. (worked great) So some sort of 'monthly limit' would be news to me. I will halt using that now

    The problem is not only that. Your online avatar storage is broken, you need to fix it by performing procedure above. (A lot of people have this issue)
