Pidgin errorneously reports: "Waiting for network"

Bug #873928 reported by Detlef Lechner on 2011-10-14

pidgin (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

If I run Pidgin normally using GNOME Shell 3.2, Pidgin notifies: "Available - Waiting for Network."
'~$ pidgin --force-online' starts my Pidgin very well with Jabber access though.
<ploppy> told me that the cause is that theNetworkManager does not tell Pidgin that the computer is online.
