Unfortunately I deleted it, and didn't write down the OpenSSL 
fingerprint.  The copy I got, had a valid certificate chain using the 
Windows certificate tool.

Does Pidgin store it, even if you reject it?  If so, copy it to Windows, 
if you have access, then rename it as .cer and launch it.  It will 
produce the Windows install certificate dialogue, from where you can 
check the certificate chain.
