#16699: Conversation ID of 0 in received-im-msg

     Type:  defect       |     Status:  new
Milestone:               |  Component:  libpurple
  Version:  2.7.9        |   Keywords:  received-im-msg libpurple
                         |  conversation id
 I have a chat bot that is using the dbus interface
 `im.pidgin.purple.PurpleInterface` to send and receive chat messages.
 Everything works as expected with one exception: The first IM message that
 I receive from any user has a conversation ID of zero.  All subsequent IM
 messages from that user will have a valid conversation ID.

 In other words, when a user initiates a new private chat with the bot, a
 new conversation is created, but I don't receive a valid ID for that
 conversation until the second time that the user sends the bot an IM
 message.  The message text is received just fine the first time, but the
 bot is unable to respond without a conversation ID to respond to.
