every time I start Empathy, I get this error a couple of times:
(empathy:25702): telepathy-WARNING **: tpf-persona.vala:841: Failed to parse new birthday string 'Sat 28 Apr 1984'
That birthday string comes from GMail contacts, I have a XMPP account setup with GNOME Online Accounts.
This would not be a problem, only Empathy shows no contacts in its windows, and it might be related. Even if it's not, it still looks like a bug :-).
