Alright, I think I might have tracked down what was causing this.  I
just checked in a small change to Jabber's roster.c that I believe
will fix the problem.  The change will be in Pidgin 2.5.0 which should
be released next week, and I'll wager Evan will released a new Adium
build soon, too.  Hopefully that'll take care of this bug once and for

Adium bug report:
