[Fixed] Pidgin: [FIXED] Custom pounce sounds don't work when switching PCs

It doesn't look like the paths in Pounces.xml are updated when Pidgin loads from a different drive letter. (Example: paths to sound files located on the portable drive.) Is that something weird with my setup, a design feature, or something that got overlooked?

I searched to see if this was asked before but didn't find anything.

File: Data\settings\.purple\pounces.xml

I can't say that I've run

I can't say that I've run into this issue at all. I will test if I get a chance tonight on a different drive letter and see if I run into the issue. I get the feeling it might be something with the setup, but I can't say for sure.

I tested this

Last night. All of the files updated correctly. My pounces worked like they should've as did all of my other files.

Sound?

Was it a custom sound that wasn't running? I don't think that portablizes yet. But nothing else in pounces is drive letter dependent.

Sound files

I did specify "sound files located on the portable drive" in my original post. Sorry if I neglected to say that they were custom sound files. It looks like the "default" sound is no problem, since that path comes from a file where the drive letter is managed, but if you browse for a different sound file for the pounce, the drive letter for that path in the pounces.xml file doesn't appear to be managed.
