empathy (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

What ever configuration changes I make in a disabled account can not be saved (apply button is not enabled).
Here are the steps to reproduce.
- Bring up the empathy chat accounts window
- Click on existing configured account that is disabled (from left hand side pane)
- In the right hand side window, make some changes like remove the remembered password or change the user name

Expected result
- Apply button should be enabled to save the configuration changes (these should be applied when next time I try to login to the chat server)

Actual result:
- Notice that the Apply and Cancel buttons remain disabled even after doing the changes
Note that I do not want to connect to an account first and then remove the remembered password and then disconnect it again.

I noticed that I am not able to make the empathy to forget the remembered password even if the account is enabled (the apply button disables if the password field is emptied and enables only when some password is present).
