I suspect that your particular AIM/ICQ account is an ICQ account. That
dialog is by far the least intuitive in gaim, with each protocol using
it very differently. ICQ in particular changes the value of that dialog
every time you change state. Thus ICQ privacy is rather more difficult
to manipulate than most other protocols.
The privacy dialog needs to be entirely replaced at some point. We are
not sure when exactly we will be able to start working on it though.
