Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

I'm on business in Mexico and my facebook chat would not log in, something about resource was already in use or something. I just ignored the problem for about a week.

Today I logged into the facebook website in my browser and found that Facebook locked down my account because of suspicious logins from mexico. This is great on Facebook's side of things. :)

I don't know if it is possible or not to change the error message in empathy to tell the user to log in to the website to check that the account is not locked out or something. It would have been useful.
