*giggle* Trillian is the most buggy ICQ client you can think of. It's not even
able to route messages through the server if it fails to send it directly.

Try anything else - licq is ok if you want a graphical one; go for mICQ if
you need a text-based one. For Windows, go for Miranda. Of course, there are
more clients than that that are worth recommending.
