Empathy catches SIGSEGV on Gnome 3

I am using Arch linux, and freshly installed Gnome 3. Installation process went smooth, until I tried to get Empathy IM running.

Shell output after running emapthy:
[root@sigma skyer]# empathy

(process:2597): empathy-WARNING **: Failed to get TpDBusDaemon: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

(process:2597): tp-glib-CRITICAL **: tp_account_manager_new_with_factory: assertion `TP_IS_SIMPLE_CLIENT_FACTORY (factory)' failed

(process:2597): tp-glib-CRITICAL **: tp_account_manager_set_default: assertion `TP_IS_ACCOUNT_MANAGER (manager)' failed

(process:2597): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

(empathy:2597): tp-glib-CRITICAL **: tp_proxy_prepare_async: assertion `TP_IS_PROXY (self)' failed

(empathy:2597): tp-glib-CRITICAL **: tp_g_signal_connect_object: assertion `G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed
Segmentation fault
I'm not sure what to do, as this kind of problem is usually associated with rather bad code/missing stuff in system.

Thank you for your help,

Alright, I am not sure what happened to the system, but it seems to work now. Problem solved.
