shows new messages for pidgin when talking to that user

pidgin-libnotify (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-applet

I-A works great with pidgin except that if I am already talking to someone and have the text box focused (the normal case, as I am typing to them), a new message from them will cause I-A to show a new message even though their chat is already focused and I am looking at it. The only way to get it to mark the message as read is to click in the actual message body above the text box, which is never something you normally do (or click another tab/window and come back).

This is reproducible always with 0.1.6-0ubuntu1 in Jaunty.

tags: added: notifications

I can confirm it on Jaunty with indicator-applet 0.1.6-0ubuntu1.

See attached image for example.

Any indication when this bug might be fixed? The indicator applet is pretty much useless as long as it has this bug.
