Public bug reported:


It is no longer possible to connect to sametime server because there is
no "Server" input box undir Sametime accounts. This happened recently
and according to a freedesktop.org bug report this happened when
libpurple was upgraded from 2.10 to 2.10.1. Here is the explanation from
the freedesktop.org bug report:

"With the latest version of libpurple (2.10.1) a change was made to the Sametime

 + Sametime:
    - Separate "username" and "server" when adding new Sametime

Although at first this seems harmless and only affecting the pidgin client, it
seems that telepathy-haze can not handle this separation. When a new account is
created for Sametime, the server details are no longer displayed. Also an old
account (that has all the details already) no longer works due to the same
issue. Adding the missing parameter to the accounts.cfg file (mission-control)
causes that this parameter is ignored and removed. 

Returning to libpurple 2.10.0 resolves the issue and the server can be
identified again when the account is created." - Raymond Wooninck
