#14803: Away Status on Startup/last status
Reporter:  Mother Fo  |        Type:  defect

 Away Status on Startup/last status doesn't seem to work anymore.

 When pidgin starts, the taskbar icon in the lower right by the clock
 appears to be away/have an away msg, but if I look at myself in my buddy
 list it always says available.

 It also has my saved away msg at the bottom of the pidgin window as well,
 but never actually makes me go away and apply the status.

 To make it actually work, I have to select available from the preloaded
 statuses and hit enter and then select my saved away status and hit enter
 and then it will apply itself.

 I also have the iconify on away plugin installed.

 Let me know if you need more info.

 Please fix this issue.  I like to just login and be away even though my
 friends know I'm there.  Iconify while away makes it so that my games and
 other full screen programs don't get minimized if I get a msg.  It's very

 Thank you,
