Package: ekiga
Version: 4.0.1-5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
      i was looking for a sip softphone and have tryed out ekiga for that purpose
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
      registered it with my avm fritzbox as a device and tryed to use it on a dayliy base
   * What was the outcome of this action?
     wasnt stable and conviniunt usable at all
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
     a smooth working softphone as stable and more functional as my hardware analog phone.

first of all you cant call numbers directly, you have always type in @fritz.box to get it working (which is very anoying), secoundly call forwarding isnt working at all, thirdly dffm arnt working everytime, just sometimes. 

And for the last often the main window gets gray, hanging or the complete application is crashing at all. here is some console output of one time this happened as i tryed to make jjust a normal call (after ekiga was running for some time):

(i had to kill it using ctrl+c because it wasnt reacting anymore)

ill hope you will make this more stable and conviniont to be a usable telephone client. Ill now have to look a round for a better, possible non-free, one...

greetings and keep up the good work with debian
