please note: I'm just a Pidgin user, no developer nor anyhow related to
the Pidgin project, apart from reading the mailing-lists.

You were asked for a valgrind log. This question has never be answered.
Do YOU call this communicating?

Pidgin is stable for me (WITH MSN). So what's your point. I'm using it
24/7 for at least 2 months without a single crash.

And you're soley here for trolling and nothing else, just wasting time,
which could be spent actually working on Pidgin...

Note: Pidgin is working for most of it's users. If YOU have a problem
with it, then YOU should fix it (even more, as you're a developer). You
are using libpurple for something which wasn't on the focus when
developing it, so you might need to tweak it a little or help improving
it (with patches).

Note2: Meebo uses libpurple as well, and don't tell me, you're having
more users than them...
