I have read the discussion on this mailing list concerning ticket #9603
that I submitted.

Please be informed that I don't save my Yahoo! password with the Pidgin
because every time I switch my status to "Available" from "Offline", I
always get a password prompt as expected.

So, I don't really know whether the committed fix really fixes the
problem that I reported. Is there anyway I can confirm whether the fix
really works, for example, by downloading a software update via
GNU/Linux Ubuntu 8.04 update system or by downloading the source code
before fix and after fix?
