I'm throw a proxy server in this box (Fedora 8 installed), in my laptop (Fedora 9 installed) I go without a proxy server to the internet, and pidgin never crash. If I set Proxy Type to HTTP, and set ip number and port of my proxy server, pidgin connect to my gtalk account fine. Same if I setup another XMPP account, for a jabber server for example.
