Thanks for the comprehensive list of the kvps, Sulabh :)
I'll be sure to jot down whatever kvps I encounter along this way in case
someone requires it at a later stage.

The change to yahoo_filexfer.c ( )
fixes the Yahoo FT issue. Mark and I have tried to transfer files from
Pidgin to the official Yahoo! Messenger, and they seem to work for all
extensions (I tried .png, .rar, .zip, .exe, just to name a few) for file
sizes upto a few MBs (20 MAX).

I also went through some open tickets for the Yahoo! file transfers, and
ticket #14503 ( caught my
attention. It's about files getting corrupted when sent over the network.
Did anyone ever fix this issue? Is it reproducible now?
I never got it to show up on my machine with PDF Files. I'd like to work on
it sometime if it still is an issue.
