Lost messages in news channel.

If you post a message to a news channel then log out without viewing the message you just posted, the message appears to be lost. The messages are there, just not visible.

Workaround: View any messages you post to news channels before logging out of Instant Messenger, or unsubscribe and resubscribe to the news channel.
