Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: empathy

I tried to join an AIM buddy chat in Empathy using the Room menu's
"Join..." option.  In the Join dialog box I was asked for the server and
room.  The "server" is not applicable for AIM buddy chat at any rate as
chats are only identified by the room name.  Leaving the server blank
and filling in the room field un-greyed out the "Join" button.  However,
clicking the Join button closed the dialog box and did nothing.

This happened in both 9.10 and in 10.04 testing.

Apparently Empathy's AIM module has no support for AIM buddy chat.
Either the Join dialog should be disabled for AIM accounts entirely, or
attempting to join a chat room with an AIM account selected should
produce an error message.

** Affects: empathy (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
         Status: New

** Summary changed:

- Empathy does not support AIM buddy chat and attempting to join a chat through Room > Join fails silently
+ Attempting to join an AIM buddy chat through Room > Join always fails silently
