Comment(by deryni):

 It is unfortunately unintuitive but that solution isn't a valid solution
 either (nor is it particularly simpler to understand or explain).

 The issue isn't as simple as online/offline. The issue is that when a
 global status is selected and an account that doesn't support that status
 is enabled libpurple cannot switch that account to that status and
 currently simply leaves the previously set status in place (whatever that
 status was). The problem with fixing this is that there really isn't a
 good way to know what status we should use instead (if any). Without some
 explict complicated user configuration and/or a much more detailed status
 equivalence system (which boils down to complicated user configuration but
 in a more general form).
