 Replying to [comment:3 tmetro]:

 turn up anything?[[BR]]

 Exactly.  That also eliminates any of the plugins that are included in the
 default installation.

 Hmm... it certainly isn't anything in the XMPP prpl plugin directly.
 Pidgin is (with a couple specific exceptions) single-threaded, so
 hopefully this isn't an issue.

 This tells us that it is something that happens during the initialization
 of the xmpp prpl.  In turn, this leads to CyrusSASL and eventually to the
 GSSAPI plugin and then the MIT Kerberos library, where we find the

 You can avoid this issue by deleting the `saslGSSAPI.dll` from the
 `...\Pidgin\sasl2` directory - it will have no negative effects since it
 can't load anyway (it is used for authenticating with your Windows
 Credentials for servers that support such a mechanism).

 I'll update the installer to automatically remove the file on NT4.
