I have the same problem too, but no need for a VPN:
- Start Empathy (I have a gtalk account)
- Confirm that you are online (Two green dots in the status bar, one for empathy and one in the new 10.4 panel thingy)
- Disconnect from the network
- Verify that your network is gone (for example browsing does no longer works)
- Observe that the two status icons are still green (Connected with no network ???)
- Click on the green Empathy icon -> Contact list shows
- Double Click on a contact shown as online -> Chat window shows
- Chat -> Chatting seems to work
- Connect to network again -> Empathy shows 'Disconnected' - 'Connected' in the chat window

-> It looks to me like Empathy does not get it that it looses the
network when the network goes, only when it reconnects

empathy doesn't appear to reconnect after VPN disconnection
