Comment 1 Peter Gordon 2008-05-07 00:12:09 EDT
What account type and connection manager is this with? 
Comment 2 Andrew Alm 2008-05-07 13:57:03 EDT
This is for an AIM account using telepathy-haze to use libpurple to connect.
Comment 3 Peter Gordon 2008-05-07 22:45:26 EDT

Setting one's own alias with Haze is still unsupported, and awaiting some fixes
from the libpurple API. Please see FreeDesktop.org bugzilla #13124 for more

Closing as UPSTREAM due to this.

Apologies for the slight inconvenience. :-/
