Jabber buddy requests disappear forever
Submitted by Michael Catanzaro
When I receive a buddy invite from a Jabber contact, I get a notification "x wants to see when you are online" with buttons to accept and reject.
Problems with this:
- The buttons are only available for a couple of seconds (as of GNOME 3.16), until the shell hides the notification into the notification area, after which they're inaccessible. Once that happens, it's impossible to accept the contact despite the outstanding request. I need to be alert to rapidly move my mouse and hit the Accept button, like a Starcraft player.
- I received two such notifications in a row upon starting Empathy. After accepting the first one, the second was immediately dismissed and it became impossible to accept the contact despite the outstanding request.
Buddy requests need to be displayed in the window.
