I have to reset my avatar icon every time I log into my Jabber.org account on
Empathy, because it's gone every time.
The people I'm talking to apparently see it fine, but I don't.
HOW TO REPRODUCE
1. Log into your Jabber.org account.
2. Set your avatar icon.
3. Restart your computer (and/or just killall Empathy?)
4. Repeat steps 1 and 2.
Empathy will remember your avatar icon.
