Description Marco Barisione 2011-03-14 07:33:26 UTC
I got a lot from somebody that cannot be opened by bustle because of this error message:
OtherName {unOtherName = "org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection.gabble.jabber.testipersoona_40gmail_2ecom_2f2ea6dddf"} claimed by unknown unique name UniqueName {unUniqueName = ":1.97"}

It looks like bustle-dbus-monitor doesn't list :1.97 at the beginning of the log (wtf?). In any case it would be nicer if it could cope better with this problem.
Comment 1 Will Thompson 2011-03-14 09:07:41 UTC
Fixed in master; will be in 0.2.4.

Bustle now just warns and makes :1.97 spring into existence just in time for the message that needs it. A bunch of other cases where corrupt logs would lead to an unhelpful error bubble have also been made to make stuff up. The warnings go to the console; in a better world they would be shown in a panel in the UI. But hey.

Thanks for the report!
