Facebook Buddies Not Appearing

Hi everyone.

This probably isn't something that Pidgin can control.  Pidgin simply
displays the buddies that it is told to display.  In this case it
sounds like the Facebook XMPP server is failing to send to Pidgin
either your roster or perhaps presence information for your roster.
There probably isn't anything we can do about it.

I'll add that I think some people experienced a similar problem
another time within the past week or so, and I believe things started
working again after a few hours.
