This seems to be a regression between telepathy-glib 0.15.4 and 0.15.5, I downgraded to libtelepathy-glib0_0.15.4-1ubuntu2 and couldn't reproduce it.

Although it's a lot more stable with the new version, I am still experiencing occasional crashes of Empathy.
Would this be a new bug that I should report as such, or the same bug?
