     Type:  defect                                      |    Status:  new        
Component:  ICQ                                         |   Version:  2.7.0      
 Keywords:  < tag ICQ status message statusmessage &lt  |  
 If someone uses a statusmessage in ICQ, with a "<"-char (&lt) in it, it
 cuts off the message in the tooltip and the "buddy-info"- window.

 The buddylist seems to handle these characters different (but not correct
 either, see buddylist in screenshot).

 Don't know, if other protocols have same issues. I noticed this in 2.6.x

 Screenshot example attached
 (Original statusmessage " <-- hat jetzt ein Macbook" )
