I know that when I first add a buddy their name kind of fades in and out for a bit but then it remains solid if they're online. I'm unfortunately not sure what's going on in this case. Try adding them to a different sub-set of your buddy list perhaps and see if they stay in that category.

DUDE, the same exact thing is happening to me. After iChat shows me theyre no one online after about 5 or 6 minuites it will keep signing me and out until I reach the limit. Ive tried everything. This is my first Mac ever and this makes me want to go back to Windows.

Are you the primary account holder on the computer? If not, maybe the primary holder has some limitations that is causing iChat to mess up? I really don't know if that's possible though.
