Interesting. Which status bar is this?

I'm going to guess you haven't ticked the box next to your account in
the account editor to actually activate it. If this is true then please
follow a bug I just filed in the upstream bug tracker[0].

Empathy as an application is quite usable without a status bar albeit
this first-run issue. More importantly though, I'm unaware of a possible
solution to "depending on a status bar". Of course, it could just
depend on gnome-panel, but users of Empathy who don't run gnome-panel
(such as myself) wouldn't want that.
