 Amazing, isn't it? :-)

 So you're saying a grep of the main source for !GetGuiResources doesn't
 turn up anything?[[BR]]

 The last few lines logged up to the point where the dialog appears

 (19:22:31) plugins: probing C:\bin\net\misc\Pidgin\plugins\libsametime.dll
 (19:22:32) plugins: C:\bin\net\misc\Pidgin\plugins\libsametime.dll has a
 prefs_info, but is a prpl. This is no longer supported.
 (19:22:32) plugins: probing C:\bin\net\misc\Pidgin\plugins\libsimple.dll
 (19:22:32) plugins: probing C:\bin\net\misc\Pidgin\plugins\libxmpp.dll

 I'm guessing that while the Jabber protocol plugin (libxmpp.dll) is a good
 candidate, that debug log buffering and and/or multiple threads might mean
 the cause isn't so obvious.

 I've also attached the remainder of the log post-dialog, and the very next
 line logged is:

 (19:22:53) util: Reading file xmpp-caps.xml from directory
 C:\WINNT\Profiles\Administrator\Application Data\.purple

 ...which doesn't seem all that notable.

 It appears the plugins are probed prior to the error, but not loaded until
 after the dialog appears.
