Autojoin favorite rooms not always succeeds with Jabber rooms

Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

I have several favorite rooms: 2 Jabber rooms (1 jabber account), 2 IRC channels in Freenode IRC account and 3 IRC channels in GimpNet IRC account.

When empathy starts, sometimes my Jabber rooms are not shown as logged-in for me (they don't appear in the dialog with all the other IRC rooms successfully joined), although it seems I am really logged in. When I select from the room list those Jabber rooms again, nothing really seems to be happening.

I need to either restart Empathy or just disable/enable the Jabber account to get (if lucky) joined in those favorite rooms.

Hi Omer,

Actually, can't reproduce it always. Every morning I open empathy, and sometimes all rooms are joined and shown in the dialog, and sometimes like today and several times last week, only IRC rooms are shown in the dialog and Jabber rooms are not.

Any easy way of enabling debug logs or something, so that I can provide more info next time it happens?
