Package: telepathy-butterfly
Version: 0.3.4-1
Severity: normal

Hi, Olivier,

Thank you for your reply for bug #523410.

I reinstalled telepathy-butterfly 0.3.4-1 and found many problems with previous
version were solved.  But it seems that the opening chat window problem does
exist for offline contact.  That is, when I wanna chat with an offline contact, a
feature supported by MSNP15, empathy refuses to open the chat window.

To re-produce the bug, you can just launch empathy and explicitly request to
open new conversation by using the menu item `Chat -> New Conversation'
and typing an offline contact's live messenger ID in `Contact ID box'.  Then, you
click `Chat' button.  The new conversation window is closed but no new chat
window is opened however.

I checked the debug log, but no information relating to the the contact ID I have
just tried with is available.

Hope the information is useful to narrow the problem.

Thank you very much.
