#1148 new Defect

Server connection settings can't be added or aren't saved

Description

Colloquy ver 2.1 (3761).
Behavior: When attempting to add a second server connection, it is not added to the connections list and the connection is not made. Infrequently I can get the connection added and connect to the second server, but after closing and reopening Colloquy, the second connection is not there. The first connection is remembered.
Circumstances: I had setup one irc connection that was set to connect via localhost and forwarding through ssh to the server and a second connection that went directly to a silc server. This seemed to be working, though I hadn't had it set this way very long when my laptop refused to wake up and I was forced to hard reboot. After reboot, Colloquy wouldn't remember any connections at all. I uninstalled by simply dragging Colloquy.app to the trash and reinstalling. No change. I did "rm -rf Colloquy.app" from a command line and removed all Colloquy related files from the ~/Library subdirectories, downloaded and installed the latest nightly build. Now I have the behavior noted above. I have also tested to see if this is related only to adding a silc server connection. I added a second connection to a different irc server with no problems and that one seems to stick; it's still listed in the Connections window after closing and restarting Colloquy. I cannot add a 3rd irc server connection, however. So, it's not just silc related. If this could still be an issue of a corrupted file not being deleted after the hard reboot, what other files might I need to manually delete?

I think I have the same problem. Two IRC (freenode) connections set up, and I cannot add a third one to SILC… I can fill the new connection dialog and all but nothing happens after I click Connect.

I managed to have a working connection after trashing colloquy's preferences and connecting to localhost (through an ssh tunnel to the actual server). This connection did appear in the connections list, and I was prompted to accept the server's key, but Colloquy died when I accepted it. After relaunching, impossible to recreate the connection.

BTW I'm using the case-sensitive journaled HFS+, which could be a track…
(I noticed there was both Plugins and PlugIns? in ~/Library/Application? Support/Colloquy?)

…and Leopard on an intel MacBook? Pro.

I tried on my G5, I get the same behavior (nothing happens after the "new connection" dialog. This machine is on 10.4.11.

And another precision, it seems to work when I don't check "Remember this connection", so I can connect but I have to recreate the connection each time.
