Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: empathy

I'm getting frequent but random "Network error" messages from empathy when
trying to connect to my Yahoo! or MSN accounts. Most of the times it does not
connect, but sometimes it does. However, once it has the problem, I cannot connect
to the problematic account anymore. I have to close empathy, kill from the
terminal the telepathy-butterfly job, and open empathy again, in which case 
it connects. After a while I can get disconnected again with "Network error".

There are other "Network error" problems reported in Karmic for specific protocols,
but I'm not sure if they report the same problem as me.
