>Summary: icq gaim icons don't show to icq users as avatars

Initial Comment:
Hey there =)

I know I'm kind of annoying you, but there are still problems with icq away 
messages in gaim. I know you have a lot to do, therefore I spend a litte time 
on this issue.

First of all I build the last gaim-2.0.0-beta5 from source on a slack 11 
Then I just started gaim without a .gaim settingsfolder and connected to my icq 
account. Okay, no problems so far. I give gaim 5 minutes to catch up all away 

Okay, it's not that bad as I thought, the only problem is, that it takes a lot 
of time to receive alle messages. But... however... very good.

But my own away message only seems to appear at other gaim users, but not at 
normal icq (and Trillian?!) users (interesting is: if I add myself to my 
gaimbuddylist an change status to away, the awaymessage field in gaim stays 
empty, but I do appear as away). As a matter of fact there seems to be some 
incompability with icq client away messages (testet with icq lite version).

At last I just have a few other things to recommend: 
- the icq icons have a size of 52x64px. Furthermore the gaim icons do not show 
up at normal icq users as avatars (other icons show up correctly here).
- unicode support for the icq away messages, there are still a few special 
chars, which are not encoded correctly (e.g. äöü in german)

Hope you think about it an this helps you improving gaim and killing a few more 
Regards, Maik

Duplicate of: 1551566 (away messages), 1621362 (special chars in away
messages). Checking for icons..can't find a duplicate for the icon one, so
changing the title of this to show that one.
