Nickname in panel doesn't change on highlight

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gaim

This happens when using the Gaim that is included in Ubuntu Edgy and with the MSN protocol, but I think it happens in other versions of Gaim and with other protocols too.

The problem is as follows: when chatting with multiple people at the same time, Gaim uses one window with tabs. When you change your active window to - for example - Firefox, the nickname of the person last chatted to stays in the panel's Window List item. When someone from another tab says something to you, the panel item starts flashing, but the original nickname stays; it thus seems that this person has said something.

Solution: when the panel item starts flashing, it should update the nickname to the person who has last said something to you.
