I assume you are talking about the logging option under preferences. Do you have that enabled?

Give some more details about what you are doing and what you are expecting.

Oh. Can't help you there. I've never seen that behaviour either with Gaim in linux or with Yahoo in windows. Once I close a chat session... it's gone.

I think it's a plugin called History that you're talking about.

Go to Gaim preferences, then to Plugins and see if you have the History plugin. If so, enable it. Things should work as you describe. Let me know.

Remember to have just about everything under Logging in Preferences turned on, as well as History enabled in Plugins.

Other than that...
