Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: empathy

When status is "available", status messages work fine (although it would be nice if web addresses would be clickable in status messages), but when status is set to "Busy" or "Away", the custom status message does not appear, although it was freshly set.
Note: the same problem is occures with Pidgin. Is it a coincidence, or it is not because of the IM client?
