Comment (by datallah):

 The xml parser (`libxml2`) is complaining that one of your ICQ buddies'
 alias contains a `'` entity.

 The problem with this is that `'` is actually a valid entity!

 For some reason `libxml2` is trying to parse it with `xmlParseCharRef` and
 not `xmlParseEntityRef` (which would have worked).  Libpurple has no
 control (as far as I can tell) of this at all.

 This actually works fine on my machine; I wonder if there is a bug in the
 version of `libxml2` that you have or something.
