channel topic not shown

Bug Description

I'm currently logged into #debian-games (OTFC), #ubuntu-motu, #scribus, and #libreoffice-dev (all on FreeNode).
Channel topics are shown for #debian-games and #ubuntu-motu, but not for #scribus and #libreoffice-dev. I know for sure that at least #libreoffice-dev has a channel topic set (people told me), so I wonder what's wrong?

For me, it is reproducible.

1. My IRC channel favorites list consists of only #debian-games (OTFC) and #ubuntu-motu (freenode) and they're set both to auto-connect at startup. For both channels, topics are shown from startup on.
2. I then log into #libreoffice-dev -- no topic shown. Same goes for #scribus (freenode), #pygtk (GimpNet). I'm starting to think that no channel that's not auto-connected at startup has its topic displayed...
3. Additionally, if I close the chat window and then have empathy "enter favorites" manually, *only* #debian-games has its topic shown (#ubuntu-motu doesn't).
4. Adding #libreoffice-dev (freenode, same as #ubuntu-motu) to auto-connected favorites, shutting down empathy, and restarting it: only #debian-games has its topic displayed; #ubuntu-motu doesn't any longer. Same if I add #pygtk (which is on GimpNet, ie a different network than #ubuntu-motu) instead of #libreoffice-dev.

 I have accounts stored for freenode, gimpnet, and OFTC (plus avahi, ICQ and a dysfunctional Jabber account).

I think the bottom line is really that for me, topics are only displayed for channels I'm autoconnected to. I added #scribus to that list yesterday (so it now consists of that plus #debian-games and #ubuntu-motu). After empathy started up today (automatically right after login), I got auto-connected to those three channels, and they all had their subjects displayed. When i manually logged into #pygtk (and other channels), their topics weren't shown.
