Summary: "Error retreiving profile" on MSN

Initial Comment:
When I try to Get Info on any of my MSN contacts, the popup window includes a section saying
"Error retreiving profile
Gaim could not find any information in the user's profile. The user most likely does not exist."
When I click on the Profile URL below it, I am in fact able to view the profile.  However,
1) I had to login first.
2) I notice that http://members.msn.com/... as displayed in the popup has redirected to http://spaces.live.com/profile.aspx?cid=...
Could it be the reason Gaim isn't finding any information in the profile is that it is either failing to login or failing to follow the redirect (or just using the wrong URL in the first place)?

Also, I think you'll find the correct spelling is "retrieving", not "retreiving" ;-)

This is using Gaim v1.5.0 on Suse 10.1

I would upgrade, but I don't see it on any Suse update mirror :-(

1.5.0 may be ancient, but so far as I can see on
http://gaim.sourceforge.net/downloads.php it's the current stable version,
indeed, it's the only version listed on that page!  As of the latest news
item (November 10th) gaim2 is still only a beta, which presumably is why
the distros don't include it.  So what you're effectively saying is that
there is no currently supported stable release of gaim...

gaim 1.5.0 is just ancient and not maintained anymore.

Please move to gaim2
