I do have issues with MSN, from time to time, as do my colleagues (might
have to do with ubuntu, or even with the pt_BR locale). I didn't have time
to debug it yet, and I've seen similar bug reports.
What I cannot understand is your attitude. You come here not asking, but
*demanding* that the bugs that apparently only you seem to be having (at
least with that regularity) be fixed, bugs that may well be related to your
chatbot and lack of understanding of multithreaded programming.
I would not tolerate that kind of abuse from my boss, I don't think it is
even appropriate for an open-source project.
The source is there. If you care that much, and if that's been so long, fix
it yourself and submit the patch. Easy. Or pay someone to do it, if you do
not have the skills.
Just watch your tone, and I'm sure people will be much more helpful.
