CPU spikes signing in to Yahoo

Adium 1.5.9 on Mavericks 10.9.2

I started up Mac this morning as I do every morning and a few minutes later noticed my computer fan spinning. A quick view from top showed Adium was using 150% CPU. I quit Adium and restarted it and a few minutes later it was back at 150% CPU or greater. I started to disable all of my accounts (AIM, Yahoo, Google) and enabled one at a time. It turned out that connecting to Yahoo caused CPU usage to spike. I went to www.yahoo.com and logged out and logged back in with the same account credentials as Adium is set to use and was able to log in. Not sure if there are any logs to view but nothing in /var/log/system.log from Adium and nothing in ~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/.

Same thing here, but noticed a Diagnostic Report kicked out by Mavericks... attached.

Adium: 1.5.9
OSX: 10.9.2

Canceling the Yahoo attempt to connect stopped the CPU spin.

Same here.
Happened this morning. Worked fine yesterday.
It does connect fine to GTalk but hangs with high CPU usage upon connecting to Yahoo.

Adium: 1.5.9
OSX: 10.9.2

I get the same problem. this is a "Hot Issue" on Adium's home page and it references a incorrect forum thread and a ticket that was closed 4 weeks ago.


Hot issues

Most recent regressions and commonly reported issues which are known to us:

There is a widespread Yahoo connection issue forum thread (http://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=24343) which triggers a bug causing high CPU use. At least the CPU use issue will be fixed in Adium 1.5.10, we'll have beta ready very soon. (#16431) https://trac.adium.im/ticket/16431

I seem to be experiencing this problem with both Yahoo and, as of about an hour ago, ICQ. Looking forward to 1.5.10 going gold.

OS X 10.7.5
Adium 1.5.9

For the record, 1.5.10 "went gold“ the day before yesterday. =-)

I just upgraded to 1.5.10 and Yahoo still seems to be borked for me. When I enable the account, I see:

Code: Select all

Error: Error reading from login.yahoo.com: Undefined error: 0


It may just be a transient issue with Yahoo itself, but at this moment, the 1.5.10 client just cycles through reconnect attempts every 5 seconds.

Ideas? :idea:

Early 2008 MacBook4,1 / OS X 10.7.5 / 6 GB RAM / Crucial M500 960 GB SSD

Edited to add: It seems that the high CPU bug has been fixed, but I'm now experiencing this one. Dang.

1.5.10 doesn’t fix the connection issue: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=26488.
