Summary: Simplify disconnect messages to an animated icon

Initial Comment:
The disconnect messages not being popups is a great improvement.  I think the 
information displayed on the Buddy List window is still more detailed than is 
necessary though. Could all the detailed information be moved to the Log 
window?  and perhaps just change the disconnected networks to animated icons? 
(as ICQ animates a flower to indicate it is connecting etc)

The messages I see on the display are as follows.

1st example:
[Jabber NA icon] [EMAIL PROTECTED]/Gaim disconnected: Couldn't connect to host

[ICQ NA icon] 1111111 disconnected: Could not connect to authentication server: 
Error resolving login.oscar.aol.com: 11004


2nd example:
[Jabber NA icon] [EMAIL PROTECTED]/Gaim disconnected: Read Error

[ICQ NA icon] 1111111 disconnected: lost connection with server: Windows socket 
error #10054

I think you can see they are quite technical, and most users would not 
understand this as well as an icon indicating it was reconnecting.

Some further info, when I click on the disconnect line in the Gaim main
window I get a popup dialog.

This is the line I clicked on:
[Jabber NA icon] [EMAIL PROTECTED]/Gaim disconnected: Read Error

Could the popup be changed to just have animated icon in the Gaim buddy
list window which shows it is trying to connect? to me the popup with
buttons is a little more complicated than it could be..

This is the popup:

===================
Connection Error

[EMAIL PROTECTED]/Gaim disconnected

Couldn't connect to host

[Connect] [Modify Account] [OK]
=======================
