Cannot call MSN contacts/receive MSN calls

Trying to make Video calls using Empathy in Ubuntu 4.10 (Lucid). Bug was created in GNOME (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=611416#c1) which was closed with a request that we report the problem here.
This is the original Ubuntu bug description (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/empathy/+bug/519551):-
"Icons appear against the contact for Audio & Video, but no call to or from MS
Messenger contacts are connected. I.e there is no sign/sound in the contacts
window (using Windows XP) that they are being called, or likewise in Empathy if
you are being called."
Functionality of the remote was verified first by establishing a video call
from MS Messenger in Windows.
A debug is attached as requested above. There were two or three attempts at
connecting to the remote from Ubuntu and one attempt at connecting to Ubuntu
from the remote. This produced the following message at the remote end:
"Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x80ee001c)"
Empathy version is: 2.29.91-1ubuntu2"
Unfortunately, because of this problem, we've had to disable voip calls in butterfly 0.5.5.
See http://kakaroto.homelinux.net/2010/03/amsn-0-98-2-to-be-released-without-audiovideo-support/ for more details on the situation.
Until P2PV2 is implemented, there will be no more calls.
(Relatedly, we /could/ get webcam-only calls working. We should do that, at least.)
So this depends on p2pv2, which is already required for bug #26849

Audio/Video calls have been re-enabled in papyon/butterfly
