I get the same error as in bug 593314, comment 3:

The workaround in comment 11, exiting empathy before enabling the plugin, works. I get the list of contacts, but Kupfer becomes unresponsive:
D [kupfer.plugin.empathy] ContactsSource: Warning(?): merged in 25.0535149574 seconds

However, after restarting Kupfer, I get the following exception:

Adding some try/except works to me.

But need to be reimplemented using async calls or python-telepathy.
