Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: empathy

With the version of Empathy in Ubuntu Karmic, it is now listed in the
message indicator applet. Clicking on Empathy Instant Messenger from
there causes the main window to appear, but unfocused (and beneath the
active window) by default. This is absolutely unnecessary. If the user
chooses it from the menu, he probably wants it and doesn't appreciate
needing to move the mouse to the other edge of the screen to raise it.

I am using Metacity, and this bug did not occur at all with Empathy's previous behaviour (without the indicator applet).
There seems to be some inconsistency in whether this happens or Empathy is, in fact, raised. However, I have not tracked down a pattern.

I also observed this issue with Pidgin.
