Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

Steps to reproduce:
* Start a conversation with somebody over Empathy
* Focus some other window, wait until other party responds
* Click on the incoming message in indicator-applet to show the new message

What happens:
Empathy conversation window flashes in task list, but stays in background

What should happen:
The conversation window should be focused, since this is what the user specifically requested

This happens with metacity and compiz, so is not a window manager problem.

Ted, that doesn't happen in upstream empathy and seems an issue on how you call it there
