Empathy does not access MSN

Since yesterday my empathy client does not show my contacts from MSN anymore. It is an empathy problem, and I found the solution (workaround) for this. You can find this in this page, but I will show it here quickly:

If you are in text interface, type the following line:

$ sudo vim /usr/share/pyshared/papyon/service/description/SingleSignOn/

In graphic interface, press ALT+F2 and type:
gksudo gedit /usr/share/pyshared/papyon/service/description/SingleSignOn/
Look for this line:

CONTACTS = ("", "?fs=1&id=24000&kv=7&rn=93S9SWWw&tw=0&ver=2.1.6000.1")

and change it to

CONTACTS = ("", "MBI")

Save the file and restart Empathy. It will now work!
