Comment 37 for bug 257190

Case #1
1.- Log in to some IM account (using Gtalk here).
2.- Change your status to "Hidden" via Empathy.
3.- Your status changes to "Hidden" on Empathy but your contacts still see you as "Busy".

Case #2
1.- Log in to some IM account (using Gtalk here).
2.- Change your status to "Hidden" via the status applet.
3.- Your status changes to "Busy" on Empathy and your contacts still see you as "Busy".

In both cases, one expects that the status changes to "Hidden" and to appear as disconnected.
