I recently changed my Google Talk password, which causes Empathy to prompt for the new one. When I enter it, everything works fine.

However, after a reboot (or desktop environment reset) it will prompt again. It doesn't remember it. How can I make it?

I'm using Empathy on Ubuntu 12.04, but was already experiencing this issue on 11.04.
