    I use Adium and like the feature that with my MSN contacts it replaces all of my contacts long display names with the nicknames I have in my Address Book. I would like this feature to be used with my Google Talk contacts too. Is there anyway I can add to the list of IM clients in Address Book as I think this will fix the problem.

    Just change the IM field in address book to "Jabber" and add their contact name.

    Has this stopped working? I just tried it and the neither the name or buddy icon changed. Works for the other IM clients I have.
