Description

When the person you're talking to in a XMPP chat is typing, we show three dots which appear and disappear. Each of these updates to the buffer makes the unread count on the tab raise, which means you have a constantly-rising number which is distracting and doesn't add anything.

It does go back to the real unread message count when they do send the message, but you can't ever really trust the count.

The issue is that the dots are inserted as a Smuxi message. IMHO it should do it directly to the TextBuffer instead, see:
