F18 - Gnome3/Empathy online status stuck

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Just rebooted my machine because Gnome3/Empathy online status was stuck - can't change it from either the panel on the top right or from empathy itself. Worked for a few minutes and now it's stuck again. Googling I come up empty - obviously telepathy and mission-control5 figure into all of this but they don't have any way to query their status. Anyone else seeing this? Any fixes/workarounds? (HowTos)
