Description (last modified by Evan Schoenberg)

Description: Trying to join a public chat fails if you have previously joined that chat. E.g. If I join the AIM Genealogy Chat at, I can initially join and partake in the chat. If I then close down the chat and try to connect later, I am unable to. No errors are displayed on screen. However, the following lines appear in the debug log:

Upon closing the chat

00:42:09: -[CBPurpleAccount leftChat:]: Chat left - something should happen here!
00:42:09: (Libpurple: oscar) Scheduling destruction of FLAP connection of type 0x000e
00:42:09: purple closeChat:genealogychat.1
00:42:09: closeChat: Removed <<<AIChat: 0x98f1ae0>:genealogychat.1>> [{(
    <AIChat: 0x9b636b0>:Genealogy Chat.0
00:42:09: (Libpurple: oscar) Destroying oscar connection of type 0x000e.  Disconnect reason is 0
00:42:09: (Libpurple: oscar) Disconnected.  Code is 0x0000 and msg is 
00:42:13: (Libpurple: oscar) rate limit cleared (param ID 0x0003): curavg = 4500, maxavg = 4500, alert at 2500, clear warning at 3100, limit at 2000, disconnect at 1500 (window size = 20)

Trying to re-open the chat:

00:42:14: chatWithName Genealogy Chat identifier (null) existing --> <AIChat: 0x9b636b0>:Genealogy Chat.0
00:42:14: chatWithName Genealogy Chat created --> <AIChat: 0x9b636b0>:Genealogy Chat.0

Looks like the line reading 'Chat left - something should happen here' really means it. I'm guessing the previous reference to the chat isn't being destroyed, and as a result, is preventing future attempts to open a chat window.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [22099]) Added -[AIService normalizeChatName:] which can be used to let a service perform normalization on a chat name so that, for example, "Genealogy Chat" and "genealogychat" are equal in terms of AIM chat rooms (since the AIM server drops captilization and spaces for chat room names). This fixes a condition which could lead to both a leaked AIChat instance and an inability to rejoin the chat after leaving for rooms which return from the server with a different name than initially specified, such as when joining "Genealogy Chat" via a link.

Fixes #8722
