Facebook contact list oddness

Hi.  Lately I've noticed many of my Facebook contacts often show up
as numeric userids (ie. -12345678901234567 at chat.facebook.com).  From
time to time, for a few moments, these numeric IDs get replaced
by their correct human-readable names before changing back to numbers. 

Anyone else seeing this behavior?  Is there a way to mitigate from within
Pidgin?  Simply setting the contact's alias from within Pidgin doesn't 
seem to "stick" (presumably since Pidgin uses the server-provided names
to avoid potential conflicts).
