Bug Description

1. setup accounts in empathy
2. tell someone to send you a friend request

expected result:
when you click the request in the indicator menu it should go away and show you the "reject/accept" dialog

actual result:
absolutely nothing happens. I have to open the empathy contact list and accept the request but the request remains in the indicator menu and is not removable at all.

this happened to me on multiple accounts. MSN and Gtalk in particular. Gtalk was setup in the gnome online accounts dialog and MSN was only setup in empathy without the gnome online accounts thing.

This has happened to me too, and it seems like a bug in both the indicator and Empathy.
