[Pkg-telepathy-maintainers] Bug#617313: empathy: Empathy becomes inaccessible without a tray dock

Package: empathy
Version: 2.30.3-1
Severity: important

When running a window manager that does not include a
system tray/dock/notification area, the Empathy window becomes
inaccessible if closed. It closes the window, assuming the user
to be able to reaccess it via the non-existing tray, and also
enters that state automatically upon startup, so there's really
no way at all of bringing it back other than starting a temporary
tray program like stalonetray or trayer.
