Please keep these messages on the list, I do not know everything and others
might be able to help.

ORBit is the old Interprocess communication system which I think D-bus is
superseding.  It might be the cause or it might be a red herring, what does the
output of the debug window say?  You can access the debug window from the Help menu.

Sorry for the double reply,

    But I just remembered that I forgot to include an error message I
thought would be important. When I start Pidgin from the terminal
without any flags, I randomly (it seems) get this error:

"Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that
you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS
locks due to a system crash. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to
session: Failed to execute DBus-launch to auto launch dbus session)"

    Running dbus-launch doesn't give me any errors as far as I can tell
though. I have no idea what 'ORBit' is either.. I hope this helps.
