Comment (by DugieHowsa):

 The problem is with how Pidgin implements the MSN protocol.  I have had
 this problem when using Pidgin in corporate environments that
 monitor/manipulate chat protocols at the network perimiter.  I'm hoping
 that "Milestone Activate MSNPV14" will resolve this issue, but I'm not
 holding my breath.

 In the mean time, if you are looking for a multiple-protocol chat client,
 use Trillian from Cerulean Studios.  It works for me where Pdigin fails.
 I am continuing to use it until the MSN protocol issue is resolved in
