Contact List Glow fails on laptop

Description

The changelog for 1.3 notes "Contact List now glows in the dark". I'm finding that while this works fine on my desktop machines and my laptops when using a CRT display, it the contact list fails to glow when my laptop's backlight is turned off. I believe that this is caused by a bug in David's Gerbil, which was introduced in 1.2

I think David has been knee-deep in the bowels of the contact list, so I suspect this may have been caused by him not properly supervising the gerbil while performing surgery on the code. I don't know if the gerbil has chewed on the internals, or if the bug has caused... excretions... that have in turn shorted out something in the glow mechanism. It might be worthwhile check with David that the gerbil hasn't been electrocuted. If not, he should probably take the gerbil to a veterinarian so that they can prescribe some antibiotics. (And it goes without saying that the gerbil should be kept farther away from the Adium source in future coding sessions!)

If you look closely at the following excerpts from the debug log, you can see evidence of the gerbil:
