When I run yahoo ymessenger (ymessenger), for some reason, I send one message, and then it brings up a window entitled "Error" that reads "Your connection to the messenger server has been lost. Please sign in again". This may only over a forwarded X display over ssh, but I am not sure, since the machine is headless and has been for a while.
It brings up "Login" and "Cancel" buttons, and if I hit "Login", I can login again, and the app works as expected.
I also know that the message does not get sent.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to machine
2. run "ymessenger"
3. send an instant message to someone
brings up error message with "login" and "cancel". If I hit "Login", it logs
me in again, and this time it works perfectly.
Should sent the message, and not log me out.

is it 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52-r1 of ymessenger?
The version is 184.108.40.206.
Ben, please try the -r1 version and let me know
Unfortunately, that didn't fix the problem.
Now it seems to be happening all the time (not just over forwarded X displays)
are you logged in twice to the yahoo network? eg. at home in addition to at work
nope..just logged in one place at a time.
Ben: Is this still hapening? I tried duplicating the problem with no luck.
I'm going to just close this out as CANTFIX, since ymessenger is a binary app and I don't think there is much we can do to change it's behavior. Also the reporter hasn't responded in 3 months.
