This sounds like a 3rd Party input method that doesn't work with GTK+.
 Not much we can do about it - it would need to be fixed by either the
input method author or in GTK+, depending where the problem is.

The icons represent the buddies' statuses - whether or not they can
see you is not their status.

Perhaps we should clear mail notifications when the account logs out
(or perhaps when it logs back in), IIRC someone didn't like that idea
last time it came up.  I think clearing the old notifications will be
less confusing.
