Empathy not listing the contacts in Fedora 17

I have been using Empathy in Fedora 17 for about a month without any issues. I have updated Fedora to the latest version on July 8th using yum and suddenly all my gtalk contacts disappeared.

Empathy is online and I'm able to receive incoming messages, but the contact list is completely empty. I was able get the contact list by running the following command in the terminal:

mc-tool request <account_identifier> available

However, I have to run this command after each reboot/suspend.

Here are the versions of related packages:

empathy-3.4.2.3-1.fc17.x86_64
telepathy-farstream-0.4.0-2.fc17.x86_64
telepathy-glib-0.18.1-2.fc17.x86_64
telepathy-logger-0.4.0-2.fc17.x86_64
telepathy-salut-0.8.0-1.fc17.x86_64
telepathy-gabble-0.16.1-1.fc17.x86_64
telepathy-haze-0.6.0-1.fc17.x86_64
telepathy-filesystem-0.0.2-3.fc17.noarch
telepathy-mission-control-5.12.0-1.fc17.x86_64
telepathy-idle-0.1.11-2.fc17.x86_64

How can I get my contact list back?

Hi! Fedora 17 is no longer supported. I suspect from the age of this question that the issue is no longer present, but someone may still be able to help you if you confirm the problem's continued existence by commenting here. Otherwise, I hope you're enjoying Fedora 20. =)

Sure was. I was trying to clean up old "unanswered" questions until I realized that my responses immediately bring these questions to everyone's attention. Seems like some administrator ought to cruise through the old unanswered questions and close them out with responses such as the one I gave.
