Sametime Accounts in Empathy not logged properly

Bug Description

Create a sametime account, log on and send some messages to other contacts.

Log files (chat transcripts) are created using the contact identifier which can be something like CN=John Smith, O=OrgName.
Chats sent to John Smith are logged under ~/.local/share/Empathy/logs/<acct>/CN=John Smith/O=OrgName

The Empathy UI for previous transcripts only seems to look in the directory associated with the user e.g. CN=John Smith, so only looks for log files in ~/.local/share/Empathy/logs/<acct>/CN=John Smith, and the previous conversations tab is always empty.

Copying the log files from ~/.local/share/Empathy/logs/<acct>/CN=John Smith/O=OrgName to ~/.local/share/Empathy/logs/<acct>/CN=John Smith means they magically then appear in the UI.
