Odd, I assume you're using Empathy? I just tried it here and it worked

Did you add IDLE_DEBUG=all when you started telepathy-idle manually?

Also, are you sure it's an idle account you've created? Is the
telepathy-haze process running? You can see other connection managers
by seeing which telepathy-* processes are up, or much prettier,
loading the debug dialog in Empathy (Help->Debug) and seeing which one
is whirring! You cn also, look in your
.mission-control/accounts/accounts.cfg and see if you a "idle/irc/..."
key, or if not, what else do you have with "irc" in the name.

Oh so many things to try! Failing that, I'll come and have a look at
it myself during DebConf (I assume by your timezone you're there)!
