I have the same problem. It happened with both of my conversations last
night. My status was on 'appear offline'. Now I'm not a computer genius, but
I do think this must be the case. I have never had this problem with other
versions. This was the second day of using this version. If my theory is
correct (which hey it may not) then its RIDICULOUS! Why would someone make a
person 'appear online' to save messages?
