I had a working 2.5.5 Pidgin - and found the 2.6.1 update.
I installed it via the instructions, and now my MSN won't connect via my 
I either need help getting it to reconnect via the SOCKS4 proxy or a way 
to rollback to 2.5.5

Can you please advise?

The error I get when I try to connect via the proxy is:

Connection error from Notification server:
Reading error

The Yahoo and AOL clients connect just fine.

Kind regards,
