No part of libpurple is explicitly thread safe.  I have used libpurple  
on a thread in the past, but that was with a UI which knew it was  
running a thread and carefully moved all incoming calls to the UI to  
the drawing thread (Adium; the threadedness of libpurple has long  
since been removed).  Pidgin does not except libpurple to operate on a  
thread different from that which it itself does.
