iChat Roster List Not Repopulating After Fast User Switching

Nevermind… I just upgraded to an iMac Intel Core 2 Duo and now I don’t have the problem anymore. Go figure.

I have found a little bug while using iChat as a chat client with our Openfire server. I am on an iMac G5 running OSX Leopard (10.5.1) and have fast user switching enabled. Whenever I leave my computer for a bit, I simply select Login Window… from the Fast User Switching menu, which essentially locks my Mac but keeps me logged in. I also have iChat set to change my status to offline when using fast user switching. The problem is that when I log back into my Mac, iChat automatically logs me back onto the Openfire server, but my roster list is now empty. This also occurs if I use fast user switching to log into another account on my Mac as well. A simple quit and restart of iChat populates my roster back to normal, but its kind of annoying having to that any time I use fast user switching. Anybody else have this problem or have any ideas or input?
