I do see the "oscar: ssi:" and "blist: Updating buddy status for screenname
(AIM)" lines in the debug log.  Interestingly enough, in my testing this morning
I was able to see the status of the imported buddies in all 10 test runs I did,
whereas yesterday  I couldn't see their status at all without signing out and
back in no matter how many times I tried.  The aliases and notes were also
correctly imported.  Nothing has changed since I tested yesterday.

I'm beginning to wonder if at least the status portion was a server issue, given
that no matter what I do now I can't reproduce the problem.  It would have been
nice if I had been smart enough to save the debug logs from my previous
attempts; I may have missed something that would have explained the whole situation.

Sorry for the waste of everyone's time.
