Empathy 3.8.1 can't add AIM or Yahoo accounts

Empathy can access accounts that are added through Gnome online accounts, but cannot add AIM or Yahoo accounts. Once I put in the required info and hit "login" nothing happens. All of telepathy is installed. Any ideas?

Same problem here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=162039 and here https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=162142

Seems to be a problem with telepathy-haze, which add libpurple accounts support.
In the second post, jesusjimenez says that the last updtates of telepathy-haze and telepathy-glib solves his problem, but that doesn't work for me. I just try to create another user, to have a fresh config, that doesn't change anything, so the problem is not in user config.

I don't understand why it works in his case and not in mine…

YES !!! Just solved it by reading this : https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=162220
The problem comes from glib2, not telepathy. Updating glib2 to the testing version solves the problem.
