This might be an issue with the evolution integration plugin, fixed in
2.6.2 (I think it is). http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/10115 has
details (about its impact on a Yahoo account).
If updating to 2.6.2 doesn't fix it, please install the debug symbols
and then get a backtrace, doing something along the lines of the
instructions at http://pidgin.im/gdb.php, but before running Pidgin,
do "break purple_account_add_buddy if buddy == 0". When gdb stops, run
"bt full" and then save that output to a file and either reply to this
email or file a ticket at http://d.pidgin.im/newticket with the output.
