Hi again

I have found a bugreport. https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6859
As far as I can tell the Bugreport is a little chaotic and it is 
possible that 2 Bugs got mixed together. But it is very much possible 
that they are at least related if not the same.

In my case the Bug seems to only be present with the facebook app from 
the package "Extra protocol plugins for Conversations and Contacts" 
version 0.8 which requires the "Pidgin protocols plugin for 
Conversations and Contacts". And as a couple of people wrote the merged 
IM-account (facebook) does not get unmerged but recreated. Which 
suggests that there is something wrong with the check whether the 
IM-account already exists.

If you too experience this problem please vote for the Bug
