#12577 closed defect (fixed)

"Recent messages" still shown when logging is disabled

Description (last modified by Robert)

If "Log Messages" is disabled but "Show # recent messages in new chats" is checked, the last # messages are indeed shown in new chats. This is confusing because "Show # recent messages..." is grayed out in the preferences, implying that it has no relevance when "Log messages" is disabled.

If logging of messages is disabled, it doesn't make sense to show the last # "recent" messages, since they are most likely no longer recent.


  1. Enable "Log Messages" and "Show 5 recent messages..." in General Preferences
  2. Open a chat with yourself and send a few messages
  3. Close the chat
  4. Disable "Log Messages" (leaving "Show 5 recent messages..." enabled, but grayed out)
  5. Open a new chat with yourself
  • Expected: The chat window will be empty
  • Actual: The chat window contains the most recent messages

This happens with both AIM and GTalk accounts (the only ones I have to test with)
