[Kopete] authorization of contacts


I have one big Problem with Kopete. I recently reinstalled my OS (SuSe). When I started Kopete for the first time on the new system my contacts were added.
The problem is that almost all contacts appeared as "waiting for authorization" although they already authorized me when I was using my old system. Isn't the authorization status stored server-sided?
So I had to ask them for authorization again.

Now I installed Kubuntu as second OS (dualboot) and the contacts are "waiting for authorization" again.
Other ICQ-clients don't have this problem. In SIM e.g. I am authorized by all contacts.

I replaced the ~/.kde/share/apps/kopete/contactlist.xml with the one of the SuSe-system but that did not help.

Editing the contactlist.xml and replacing
<plugin-data-field key="ssi_waitingAuth" >true</plugin-data-field>
<plugin-data-field key="ssi_waitingAuth" >false</plugin-data-field>
of each contact did not help as well. The file seems to be overwritten each time I start Kopete.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Matthias
