bitlbee sets away when user has status message (for yahoo)

when a user has a status message in yahoo (but isn't set as away or busy) bitlbee says the user is away with "away" as the away message

example: there is a user on my Yahoo contacts list, named Bailey her status message is "don't you love to hate... yet hate how you love?" (as seen in Yahoo Messenger) on bitlbee it says "Bailey. User is away. Away" and she doesn't have voice in the main channel

Is this bug being worked on?

I too face this bug. It is exactly for this reason that I had stopped using bitlbee. It is kind of sad to see this bug still open.

It saddens me as well that this isn't resolved yet.

Actually, I think this is fixed now. Unfortunately it means you won't be able to see the status at all, since that's just how IRC works. However, the Jabber module has a separate info command for it. Maybe that should work for Yahoo! too.
