Yahoo Messenger 8.1 DOESN'T fix that annoying bug


The REALLY annoying bug that I posted about before has reappeared. Since Yahoo doesn’t seem to respond to any support requests on the subject, I thought I might try to help them debug the issue. Here are the Window’s messages that are processed by the main window every second or so:

Another bit of information that I thought was interesting: When this bug is occurring, Yahoo Messenger won’t pop-up in front of Command Prompt windows. Start->Run->cmd. As long as they are in the foreground.

    It happens in Yahoo Messenger 10, too.

    Five years have passed since this blog post—five long years. In this time the Earth has traveled 2.3 billion km. The US has elected Obama, twice.

    Yahoo Messenger is now in version 11….

    And it is STILL STEALING FOCUS!!!!

    Gah!
