I like this widget, but why when i click a contact is it using my aim/adium account and not defaulting to ichat?

This is a great little app and is exactly what I was looking for. I only gave it 2 stars cause it needs some improvement in the following areas to make it actually useful.

Click on "Buddy List" at the top should load the actual Buddy List from iChat

Clicking on a buddy should start an Instant message not a chat invite.

The biggest reason I find this app less than useful is that it does not update status on the desktop unless you relaunch the Widget or put it back in the dashboard.

Hey I love this one because its by far the best looking iChat Widget out there. The onther ones are either just plain ugly or they are way too big.

But I'm having some of the same problems mentioned above. When I click on a name, it launches AIM instead of opening an iChat message window.

I'm not having an problems with it updating though, it seems to be updating fine for me.

Keep working, I want a working version of this one! Thanks!
