Comment (by shreevatsa):

 I found what the extra problem is, and it's specific to XMPP and a couple
 of other protocols. The patch above fixes the linkification (and this is
 what is sent inside <body> in XMPP, and clients not supporting xhtml-im
 see it fine), but a few protocols then call purple_markup_html_to_xhtml,
 which is broken. I can't figure out how to fix it stopping at "'"s,
 especially when Pidgin itself is guilty of sending such links... The
 function should probably be using a proper parser, not doing some ad-hoc
 string manipulation.
