[Telepathy] Some issues with Empathy

Hey guys,

I've tried Empathy a while back and loved it, but I had a couple of issues 
that had me go back to pidgin, I reinstalled it today to check it out but 
sadly those issues are still there.

The major thing I hate is the fact that Empathy won't show the contact window 
where I placed it. I like to stick my contact window to the right to look like 
a panel, but each time after I close the window it appears at a random place 
when I open it? Any plans to fix this?

I faced an issue with version 2.24, I wonder if it's still here, sometimes 
messages I send end up going to some other contact on my list, not to the 
intended recipient.

An issue that limits usability for me is proxy support, any plans?

I went back to Pidgin mostly because of the second issue, but I'd love to see 
all these issues solved. Empathy has much better potential than Pidgin but 
Pidgin is still superior now. With the great effort being put into Empathy I 
know it'll be better.
