    Obviously iChat is not working correctly for me. When I double click on a contact in a buddy list (AIM or Jabber), a new message window pops up but not contacts are included. If I try and send a message, I receive a prompt saying that I need to select a contact from the buddy list. I've tried to reinstall iChat using the Leopard install discs included with the Air but the problem persists. Any ideas?

    do you have chax?

    have you deleted your preference files (homefolder/library/preferences/) and tried relaunching iChat ?
