Bug Description

Binary package hint: telepathy-butterfly

According to http://blog.desmottes.be/post/2010/10/01/Whats-new-in-Empathy-2320 Empathy 2.32 is able to do Audio/Video-Calls via MSN. So i'm testing this with...

 * Ubuntu Maverick and Empathy 2.32
 * Windows XP SP3 and Windows Live Manager 2009 Build 14.0.8117.416

Live Messenger calls Empathy:

 * Empathy: I can see my webcam and the remote picture
 * Live Messenger: Only the "local" picture is displayed, and the program still makes a ringing sound. It looks like that
Live Messenger doesn't know, that i accepted the call within Empathy

Empathy calls Live Messenger:

 * Empathy: I can see my webcam and the remote picture
 * Live Messenger: Sometimes it works and i can see both pictures (local and remote), but often the call gets interrupted as soon as the remote picture should be visible
