Empathy - network error


Hello,
I'm experiencing problems with Empathy/Telepathy. It used to work with only one jabber server, then I tried reinstalling it and now it does not work at all.

The message displayed is always just "Network error", without any further info. It's displayed right after I start Empathy - no "trying to connect" delay.

No error messages are throwed in shell. However, I found something in .xsession-errors:

Code:
(empathy:2191): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:2412: instance `0x13ed500' has no handler with id `1086'

(empathy:2191): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid unclassed pointer in cast to `TpAccount'

(empathy:2191): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: instance with invalid (NULL) class pointer

"'
    JS ERROR: !!!     message = '"Shell.util_icon_from_string is not a function"'
From that I'd assume that it's rather code bug, but it seems like there are people claiming they solved it somehow.


Thanks for help,

Skyer

Well,
I still don't have the answer (at all), but at least it started working finally. It's not problem solved though, as this has happened to me many times in past, and I was never able to solve it 'rationally'.
