1.) But this is what happens currently. Details:
 - I type a message
 - after I press enter, it appears in the conversation window
 - after a minute an error message about my message failing appears

2.) The delayed own message bug happened again. There was an animated
picture sent by the party before that. Pidgin version 2.5.1 (and the
bundled GTK).

(protocol is MSN)
