Persistent "waiting for network connection" and buddy lists don't load on open

Running Pidgin 2.7.3 in Debian Stable, installed from the repositories.

Two things seem to be happening in the client. 

One, whenever I open the client when I log in, none of the lists load.
This is remedied by opening the account management window, and
disabling and re-enabling each protocol. 

The second thing that happens is the "Waiting for network connection"
bit remains in the status pulldown toward the bottom of the window.

For tourist information, I have configured a Yahoo, MSN, ICQ, AIM, and
two XMPP connections (one for Livejournal, one for Gmail).  

How can I fix this?
