 A popup window every time it is clicked would be effective, but probably
 kind of annoying. Perhaps the warning could be issued in brief right under
 the checkbox with a "More info" or "Read more" link, either pointing to
 more information on your pidgin.im or maybe just a simple help popup


 [ ] Remember Password

 Warning: When choosing this option, your
 password is stored unencrypted. [Read more...]


 Something like the above would probably be enough.
