It would be nice if next time you trim the log so that only the relevant
stuff is there, instead of just zipping up 5MB of log...

nss error -5961 is PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR, but see below.

It's not clear to be that you are using libpurple correctly. I see lots
of error like:

(18/05/2009 - 15:09:55) - ERROR - account: Attempted to save accounts
before they were read! 


(18/05/2009 - 15:09:50) - ERROR - msn: servconn 000 read error, len: 0,
errno: 10036, error: Windows socket error #10036 

I vaguely recall that your application was using libpurple from more
than one thread, has that been fixed yet? (a quick search of winsock
error 10036 sound like that's what's happening).
