Well, it sounds like you have a problem that might be caused by
something like a software firewall or similar.

Do you have an anti-virus software running? Might it have decided a new
version of Pidgin needs to be permitted to send data?

Just a couple of suggestions to get started with, but some more
details of your setup would be useful....

I've cc'd you in case you're not subscribed to the Pidgin support
mailing list, replies should only go to the list address please.
