This is what pidgin printed when I tried to login to my XMPP account.
It turnes out, the account has expired.
The message is very uninformative. First I suspected server problems
(see the gtalk DNS SRV problem discussed here recently).
Issue 2: When I dismiss the error message by clicking X, the account is
still marked as active by Pidgin. Should it be inactive?
If I unckeck it in the Account window, nothing happens. If I recheck it,
it tries to login again. Looks like it was diabled, only the GUI was
Issue 3: selecting the login error message with the mouse, then pressing
ctrl-c pops up the Join cgat dialog instead of copying the text, like 99%
of the ofther software in the world.
Using Pidgin 2.7.9 on Windows XP Pro SP3.
