Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

The open Empathy windows 'Contact List' and 'Conversation window' have the same icon in task-switcher. This is inconvenient from a user's point of view.
They should differ by an emblem.
'~$ uname -a;
Linux T43 2.6.31-20-generic #57-Ubuntu SMP Mon Feb 8 09:05:19 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux'
'~$ apt-cache policy empathy
  Installed: 2.29.90-1+ppa9.10+1
  Candidate: 2.29.90-1+ppa9.10+1
  Version table:
 *** 2.29.90-1+ppa9.10+1 0
        500 karmic/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status 0
        500 karmic-updates/main Packages
     2.28.1-1ubuntu1 0
        500 karmic/main Packages'
But my statement applies to the regular Karmic empathy package as well.
