Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

 To reproduce: Create a metacontact by linking two contacts from different IM protocols. Double click the new metacontact. A chat window appears using one of the IM protocols (for me it is facebook others have reported other protocols being used as default).

There should be a way to specify which protocol is default. I avoid facebook whenever possibly so I now have to manually select the protocol when contacting my metacontacts.
