Running database check on the database will corrupt the history:

Before - no corruptions observed.

History check runs and finds "duplicate" items and "skips" them (yellow text) in the dbchecker.

This results in massive corruption of contact's history in the database. Some messages are fine, but mostly they are destroyed and replaced by garbled text.

OWN messages are NOT affected - only history events related to the person you are talking with.

Probably not updated? :3

Sometimes this manifests itself by repeating segments of my own message with the party b's timestamp:

Actually, back when troll racial used to heal the troll (allows spirit-based hp regen to continue in combat or something)

Vulpix, 22:38:39:
People tried to get as much warrior spirit gear to see how much the regen was and it was still absolutely useless x3

Obviously, <party B> didn't repeat my sentences 3 times randomly. They said something normal - but it's gone, and my text is in its place.

The same is observed for Steam plugin.

This issue is not observed for (for example) AIM plugin.

Quick update - I think it has to do with "convert old messages from unicode to utf8". I have tried running the check with "mark all events as read" and "aggressive" many times since the posting of this bug - and that issue has not manifested itself again.

I reproduced it once on test profile and then it stopped reproducing :( And ghazan needs fully repeatable bug to reproduce it on his machine.

Yeah it happened twice with my actual profile (I had backups the second time but not the first time) and then it stopped reproducing too. But it's definitely there.... unsane said he'll probably look into the issue a bit this weekend. Until then, I'm always making a backup before running the dbchecker.

I need to run it for pretty much every new tox contact I add - because for some reason, unless I do "mark all as read", the entire history of the contact always tries to load itself whenever I start a chat. Only happens with newly added contacts though.

I'm resurrecting this old topic because the issue occurred again. Again, it's the steam and tox protocol affected.

Luckily this time I have a before/after backup.

This is before:

Contact A, 19.10.2015 20:07:07:
God*

This is after:
Contact A, 19.10.2015 20:07:07:
肀賥肄蓣肴蓣肄胣肈郣肌


I can't find anything more relevant, just that it also corrupted some other chats that are from 21.05.2015 which is from so long ago... I have a backup from the 19.10.2015, 21:00, when the messages are still fine (even that one for 21.05.2015), so clearly the run of dbchecker afterwards messed up the history not just for recent but also for some older data.

I did not use the "convert" option. Just "mark as read" and "aggressive".

@unsane/robyer, could you please look into it? I obviously have both of my profiles, prior to and post-corruption, but they contain too much personal information to share and if I strip it then they will not be valuable.

There must be something wrong however because this doesn't happen with other protocols like jabber.

If there is some more info that you want me to provide, please let me know how I can get it. Maybe look at the particular message in db or something?

Vulpix, hi, I've looked through all Steam proto and there are few parts that add events to DB. It is using his custom method "AddDBEvent()", which might be somehow wrong (but for first look it looks okay).

But it is questionable why unsane used this custom function on some places, where is usually used standard variant. One such place is method for receiving messages - CSteamProto::RecvMsg(), where he used "AddDBEvent" instead of classic "Proto_RecvMsg()" which is used in almost all other protocols (AIM, FB, GG, Jabber, MSN, Sametime, Twitter, VKontakte, WhatsApp, Yahoo). Own method is used in Tox too. My bet is this will be part of the problem.

We need response from unsane, why he not used standard method.
+ I'd like to have comment preferably from ghazan to clarify what could be wrong with that custom method (because it's used not only for receiving messages - so it still could break other events).


(... maybe there is just used some wrong flag for codepage?)

Copy-paste driven development  :)

I removed custom AddDBEvent from tox and steam at r15606, r15606.

Interesting! :o

Is there a way to repair/recover the already-corrupted history entires? Or at least repair the current ones so that they don't become corrupted when I need to run the db check again? Right now I can't run it because it'll happen again.

Maybe there could be a debug log for the db checker which would tell us why it thinks those entries are wrong, and what exactly it does with them? (because prior to db check, they look fine in normal history. After db check I get chinese. Or japanese, whatever that is. Unicodese :P)

Vulpix, try to create new profile and import everything from old profile there. But that probably won't help. Maybe try XML export via UserInfoEx? I'm not sure if there is any solution for the corrupted events...

Oh, no, no non on onononoono :D

I am  not importing my profile anywhere. It always loses some messages, some contacts and some other stuff; avatar history too.

I'm thinking I'll just use history export (txt), then history import (gonna switch to x86 miranda), and then re-bookmark all of my bookmarks manually. Seems like a hassle but last time I tried import, it just didn't work properly. The profile is maybe ten years old, from miranda IM times even. I'm getting a little nostalgic here but basically I once tried importing stuff and it just all broke...so no =P just no.

I plan on actually doing a full history export/import at some point, but it's going to be a problem because I've not yet solved the problem of a) avatar history, b) dummy contacts (since you can't just "create" a dummy contact :< ) and a few other things.

Vulpix, did you tried new "full import" via Import.dll plugin? It should import everything.

Btw how would you imagine adding dummy contacts? How and with what result? :-)

b) dummy contacts (since you can't just "create" a dummy contact :< )

I think you've needed something else, but I have improved Dummy protocol to allow searching and adding contacts. (And you can add contacts manually to other networks via AddContactPlus plugin)

Also users can send messages to Dummy contacts now. So Miranda could be raped into some kind of private notebook - user create new Dummy account, add some dummy contacts and then send messages to them (which will be saved to DB for their later use).
I was developing mainly Facebook, Omegle, Steam, Dummy and MobileState plugins. Now I'm retired. Goodbye, everyone. ~ You can still find me on Facebook.
