OK now you've confused me a little bit.  You say that I'm not using Network
Manager.  I honestly don't know too much about Network Manager and I don't
really know whether or not I'm "using" it, whatever that might mean.  I just
installed Debian Squeeze Beta 1 with pretty much all default options and a
manually configured static IP address (manually configured IP address during
the installation process).  I tweaked absolutely nothing related to Network
Manager or similar packages (or anything else for that matter).  So you can
consider my system to be pretty standard, and many other people that install
Debian Squeeze will have a system configured just like mine.

My next question is, you say I "appear to have it running, or something like
that".  How do I run it?   How do I turn it off?  If my computer is a
Desktop (not a laptop) with a static IP address, do you recommend running
Network Manager or turning it off, and how to I run it and/or turn it off?

Yes, my install of Debian Squeeze is default everything so yes, I _am_ using

In summary, since my install of Debian Squeeze is a very standard one and I
have not tweaked anything (other than specifying a static IP address during
the install process), and since Empathy and Pidgin are not working for me
out of the box (I had to use the scary "gconf" workaround mentioned before,
and _nobody_ else will figure that one out), I would consider this to still
be a bug.  Perhaps reopen the bug?
