#6253: Pidgin forgot my accounts

 My computer crashed a few minutes after I had started it (as it usually
 does 1/2 of the times I start it, crappy hardware...) and when I started
 it again, Pidgin said I didn't have any accounts. All settings were also
 reset. Pidgin usually doesn't forget anything, even when the computer
 crashes, but maybe this time the computer crashed while Pidgin was writing
 to it's settings files? In that case, I think this could be avoided if
 Pidgin, instead of writing directly to it's files, first create and write
 to new files, and then delete the old files. Then Pidgin would always have
 the old files if the system crashes while Pidgin is writing to it's files.
