Status does not auto-update from Away to Available
Last modified: 2010-07-14 12:20:06 EDT
Description of problem:
When the user is idle for some time, Empathy automatically sets his/her status to "Away". This is a well-known and expected behaviour. When the user becomes active (e.g., moves the mouse or types something), Empathy does not change his status back to "Available" (or whatever the status was before auto-changing to "Away"). This feature works fine in F12, but has never worked in F13.
Version is i686, if that matters; all available updates applied. Empathy runs with a single ICQ account.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
empathy-2.30.2-3.fc13.i686 (and all previous builds for F13)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Empathy
2. Let the computer run idle for some time (5-10 minutes)
3. Empathy changes status to "Away"
4. Move the mouse or type something
The status in Empathy remains "Away".
The status in Empathy should change to "Available", or, better, to whatever it was before auto-changing to "Away".
