Summary: GAIM doesn't update contact list after suspend

Initial Comment:
When I'm online with GAIM (beta6) over ICQ, and I suspend my computer and later 
resume it, the contact list isn't updated, so that contacts which are now 
online aren't visible but contacts which have gone offline are still online. 
Also when people have sent me messages while the computer was suspended I don't 
get them on resume. When I disconnect and reconnect manually everything is fine 
again, and the new messages are polled.
IMHO this is because GAIM doesn't recognize the connection drop on suspend, 
like the original ICQ client (and for other protocols as well) it should 
recognize if the network connection drops, and then disconnect and 
auto-reconnect when the connection is there again. This would fix this 
behaviour as well.

Yes, this is annoying me a lot, too?

What happens to different protocols:
ICQ: Looks like you are still online but you are not. Disconnect not
Jabber: You get an error telling you that the connection was lost
MSN: Same as Jabber

I would really prefer if gaim would log off once a suspend is detected. I
guess this could be detected using dbus but not sure.
