Calling PurpleAccountSetUsername is unnecessary, PurpleAccountNew does
that for you so just give it the username you actually want to use.

Calling both Connect and Register is likely not what you want either, at
least not in that order.

If you need to register the account you need to call Register without
first calling Connect.

I'm assuming 4184 is the integer value you got back for the account from
PurpleAccountNew? If that is the case then PurpleAccountSetEnabled(4184,
"gtk-gaim", 1) should work, that should cause the account to become
enabled and to be affected by the global status.

And in a quick test in the python interpreter I was able to make it work
for a pre-existing account.
