I am running the latest 2.0.1 Beta client (3/29/06) and have noticed that
when I recieve a new message, the messenger item in the gnome panel
flashes. I like this feature, however when I open the conversation window
and read the message it is not clearing the alerting, and it continues to
flash until I close the conversation window.

I am using OpenSUSE 10.1 RC2.
