Sometime Today, Rahul Saxena assembled some asciibets to say:

well, that's the way it's supposed to be.  you can have multiple buddy 
accounts under one contact, and conversations can be carried on across 
accounts, so a single log file per contact - regardless of number of 
accounts - is what is needed.  As far as having many logs for a single 
person, I don't understand how that could happen.  When you rename a 
contact, the log gets renamed too.  When you merge two contacts, the 
logs get merged too.

Yes, that is intended behaviour.  There is no way to know whether the 
nickname in your contact list was got from the server or whether you set 
it yourself.  If you set it, you would not want it changed 
automatically, but if it were set from the server, then maybe you would.  

Suggestions on how we could figure out the difference are welcome.

Another problem is if you have a buddy who has yahoo and msn.  You might 
want to have them as the same contact - for fallback messaging to work.  
Now, if the nicknames conflict, what do we do?
