Comment(by Dakusan):

 To summarize what has been going on... In early January, when both SSL and
 ClientLogin were enabled at the same time for either ICQ or AOL, Pidgin
 could not connect. This was and is a problem with the AOL servers
 (possibly an unannounced update to the protocol?). The Pidgin developers
 tried to contact AOL about it to find out what the problem was, and AFAIK
 they never received an answer. IIRC, the problem fixed itself after about
 4 days. Starting, I believe, within the last week, the problem started
 occurring again. The problem is intermittent, and often trying to log in
 multiple times in a row (i.e. 10) will cause a successful login. Starting
 a few days ago, the problem has changed so that now only having SSL turned
 on breaks things. Again, AFAIK, this is an AOL server problem, and there's
 not much the Pidgin developers can do if if it's a bug on the AOL servers
 or AOL does not let them know about the new protocols.
