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

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.
