Whenever I get a message on Facebook or gtalk, a bubble pops in the upper right corner, and I hear a sound. But, the message icon doesn't turn blue, and no "new messages" or such is displayed.

Besides, status in the indicator is always at "disconnected" "A message just arrived, the indicator didn't turn blue, and no messages are waiting. Besides, empathy stands Desconectado"
