[Ekiga-list] Text chat window pop-up?

Hi All,

Just started to use Ekiga on Ubuntu Linux, OpenSolaris and Windows as a possible replacement candidate for Skype - very much liking what I'm seeing so far! :) I have a few questions and problems which I'll post about in the next few weeks which I hope someone can advise me on, starti

I have two machines on the home network, one running OpenSolaris snv_134 x64 the other running Ubuntu Linux 10.04LTS x86. Both are running version 3.2.6 of Ekiga. I haven't configured a SIP account (through ekiga.net) for either, but logged in to each Ekiga client I can see the usernames of my two test users (User A and User B) appearing in the "Neighbours" group of my contact roster, so mDNS appears to be is working at both ends (video calling works great but I am getting ahead of myself).

If I select the user at either end in the "Neighbours" group and start a text chat, would I expect the user at the other end to be presented with a pop-up window containing the text message? At present this is what I see:

- User A starts a text chat with User B
- User B does not see a new pop-up window with User A's message contents - in fact there is no UI feedback at all
- If User B then selects User A from their "Neighbours" group and starts a new text chat, the contents of User A's message are visible in User B's text chat window in a separate tab

Is this normal behaviour?
