 As discussed in #pidgin this afternoon:
 15:59:14 <deryni> The idle status stuff is designed to set you *to* an
 away status.
 15:59:22 <deryni> It doesn't change you *from* an "away" status.
 15:59:38 <deryni> Presumably pidgin considers invisible to be an "away"
 status (not an
                   available status).
 16:00:08 <deryni> Which makes sense since you wouldn't generally want
 pidgin making you
                   uninvisible because you walked away from your desk for
 too long.
 16:08:16 <deryni> pidgin will change you *to* any status.
 16:08:21 <deryni> It won't change you *from* any status.

 Does this work when you are already in an "online" status? (Any of the
 ones with a green circle at a guess. I'm betting it does.)
