So.. does anyone have any clue where Ekiga is hiding its main
Hmmm that is so... weird. I don't understand gconf at all :-P I
rebooted and.. whiz bang, Ekiga picked up the config that was sitting
in the .gconf/ekiga directory for hours beforehand. Weird that
application level config changes are not picked up until after at
least a logout/login.
Thanks for that mail. That i have asked myself yesterday too.
Maybe do you also know where Ekiga stores the Logindata for a Network?
It all seems to be in the same place... in $home/.gconf/ekiga Somehow
Ekiga hangs on to whatever is in there and doesn't release or update
itself if you manually change the contents.

No, Ekiga doesn't hang on to anything. Ekiga uses the gconf *service*
for configuration - it gets and sets config via the gconfd session
daemon. gconfd loads its databases when you start it an operates from
RAM flushing changes to its persistent database. So you can't change
settings beneath it. Use the gconf-tool and gconf-editor.

The network login data is buried in the XML files in that directory.
If you're manually changing or want to completely wipe the setup, then
exit Ekiga, kill gconfd-2, delete/change the .gconf/ekiga directory
and... logout/in I guess... unless you can discover what other process
is running that makes Ekiga retain the settings it has read and kill
that too.

It probably stores passwords/credentials in the keyring.
