In Ubuntu 12.04, if someone contacted me via Empathy, I could write their name and open a chat window via HUD. This seems to have been disabled. People appear in the notification dropdown menu, but if I write their names, no relevant results appear. Have I somehow tampered with the system, or has it in fact been disabled in 12.10?

What does "HUD" mean? – imz -- Ivan Zakharyaschev Dec 1 '12 at 12:03

It's a regression. You can find the bug report on Launchpad.
