Running PCLOS 2700 with all current updates in a single partition system.

Kopete has been working just great until suddenly yesterday the online status indicators for those in the buddy list stopped working. Now everyone, including those I know for sure are online, shows as being offline. Connecting to those in buddy list is not a problem.

Following services all active - MSN/Yahoo/AIM/GoogleTalk (via Jabber).

Anyone else experienced this ? Any solutions?

BTW did a reinstall via Synaptic but problem remains.
