oscar: Fix a race condition that leads to a crash.

With SSL enabled, if we start connecting and something calls
purple_account_disconnect between when an SSL flap connection is started
and when the connection is actually established, it isn't properly
cleaned up (and we try to close the flap), which leads to free-after-use.
You can simulate this by adding a timeout-triggered disconnect to the
end of oscar_connect_to_bos.
