Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we cannot work on this bug because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.

We have instructions on debugging some types of problems at

At a minimum, we need:
1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem,
2. the behavior you expected, and
3. the behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).

This bug can be reproduced by signing in to an IM account using Empathy (in my case MSN and Facebook Chat) and selecting the desired status to be 'Invisible' from the Indicator Applet Session Utility. Instead of switching to the 'Invisible' status as expected, both the applet and the main Empathy windows show it as 'Busy', however the status will change to 'Invisible' when changes through Empathy. When the status is changed to Invisible through Empathy, the applet will update itself to invisible as it should. I tried this with Pidgin, and it worked as it should (I could change my status to Invisible through the applet).

It is also not possible to change to status after accounts have been logged out of (either through the applet or through the client) as the other statuses are greyed out and cannot be selected. The only way it can be changed is by manually logging on through the client window.

the problem is in telepathy-gabble for gtalk only *but* facebook using the google talk implementation in empathy is treated that way too. for msn your status is actually invisible. facebook in empathy does not support status change.
