I have a situation where I am unable to delete an IM Buddy; right-click, choose delete from the contact menu, but nothing happens. There is some background, though, which may not be related.
This buddy was originally added as email@example.com. Later, a new domain (fake.com) was added and that user's account was changed to firstname.lastname@example.org. So that this user would still receive mail at the old address, email@example.com was added as an alias.
Now, firstname.lastname@example.org still shows up in my buddy list, and I cannot delete it. I am tempted to edit that account and change it back to the original address to see if I can delete it then.
This is the only buddy in the list, by the way. If I create a second one, and then try to delete the first one, the second one gets deleted instead.
I'll continue to tinker to see if I can remove it. But just in case, would someone be able to tell me where to go manually delete it? I'm sure it's in LDAP or MySQL and I would find it if I just looked. But I would rather someone with knowledge about the beta IM feature give me a list of steps to make sure I remove this buddy cleanly.
