Bug Description

Binary package hint: telepathy-butterfly

I'm having some problems getting Empathy to reconnect to my MSN account after it has lost the connection.

For some reason, when I start uTorrent via WINE my wired connection is lost (but that an entirely different bug). This, of course, causes Empathy to lose connection and it goes off line. When Ubuntu manages to get the wired connection up and running again I can't get Empathy to connect. Choosing "Available" as the status doesn't work.

If I open the System Monitor and end the process "telepathy-butterfly" and choose "Available" as the status in Empathy it works again (Empathy starts the "telepathy-butterfly" process again).

Release: 8.04

Same problem here.
Choosing "Available" causes a "net error" message, but wifi (or wired) connection is up and running.
Killing telepathy-butterfly and restarting Empathy does the trick.
