Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: empathy

I cannot participate on group chat using empathy. First, I cannot find any way to invite
someone else to some chat I'm participating, but this I suppose is another problem, which
was reported here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/empathy/+bug/200763
but somehow it was marked as fix released.

The problem I'm posting is this:

When the other person invites someone to join the chat, a notification appears in which
saying that I was invited to joint a chat room, with a long url and a "click here" message.
Being a notification, of course one cannot click on it, as it disappears as one puts the
mouse over it.

The result is that the other side of the conversation sees the chat room formed and
one leaving it immediately.
