After upgrade to 12.04 my Empathy and jabber accounts were working fine. After recent ubuntu updates (last few days) it is unstable and usually dies a little while after login. Empathy locks up for a while then say can't connect to Telepathy. Logging out/in and full restarts don't fix it, in that telepathy appears to lock up after time.

"There was an error while trying to connect to the Telepathy Account Manager. The error was:
Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."

Manually killing and restarting all telepathy and empathy processes does fix the problem for a while, but when I look later I find jabber accounts no long working and telepathy shows errors like above if I try to connect.

When I restart mission-control-5 I get a warning, though may be nothing unusual?

(process:5511): mcd-WARNING **: Could not add client names match rule: Key 'arg0namespace' in match rule contains junk after argument number. Only 'path' is optionally valid ('arg0path' for example).

And while connecting get some of these warnings, labelled 'CRITICAL', permission problem?

(process:5511): mcd-CRITICAL **: _mcd_channel_set_status: assertion `channel->priv->status != MCD_CHANNEL_STATUS_FAILED' failed

Bilal Shahid,
  Looks like the logs are devoid of any useful information, this can't possibly be our fault.

If Aaron Roydhouse says the only messages he gets are these warning, then likely he has all the same DEBUG messages I do.
