Pidgin uaf when cancelling file select dialog after accepting DCC SEND

Here is the reproducer:

echo $':c PRIVMSG a :\x01DCC SEND a a a a\x01\r\n' | nc -l -p 6667

Then you must accept the dcc send and cancel out of the file select
dialog. If you either click save on the file select dialog or you do
not accept the dcc send, then the uaf does not happen.
