Hi Daniel,

I downloaded this new file:


And placed it here C:\Program Files\Pidgin\, overwriting the existing file.

Now when I start up Pidgin, my two AIM accounts do not connect.  If I 
click the Accounts menu item at the top of the buddy list to list all my 
accounts, it says "Unknown" in parentheses next to the screen name where 
the protocol normally appears.

I tried disabling and enabling them, and still the same.  If I try to 
use "Edit Account", the protocol comes up as Bonjour, presumably because 
Bonjour is the first item in the protocol list.  AIM/Oscar doesn't even 
appear as an item in the list now.

Any ideas?  Maybe I should just reinstall 2.5.0 and live with the 
admittedly infrequent crashing until the next version.
