The debug window output you pasted seems to be consistent with a bad username
and password error on AIM.  Of course, that's not your real problem.

Open the debug window (Help->Debug Window), then open the Plugins dialog
(Tools->Plugins).  This will make Pidgin re-probe its plugins, thus showing some
useful debugging information.  At this point you should be able to type yahoo in
the text box at the top of the debug window and click Filter.  When that happens
you'll see yahoo-specific messages, including any plugin probe messages or
errors relating to the yahoo plugin.  Please provide *that* debug output.
