#0  purple_plugins_save_loaded (key=0x4bd269 "/pidgin/plugins/loaded")
    at plugin.c:1244
(call to pidgin_plugins_save optimized out here)
#1  0x000000000047d0be in pidgin_quit () at gtkmain.c:326
#2  0x00007f95c382bbfa in purple_core_quit () at core.c:228

At this point, all the plugins have already been unloaded, so either the
UI should be quit before the plugins are unloaded or the UI shouldn't be
trying to save the list of plugins.
