#767: Error reading blist.xml

Comment(by thecondordb):

 I can confirm this error. Running Ubuntu 10.04 (64 Bit) with Linux
 2.6.32-25-generic #44-Ubuntu, Gnome 2.30.2 and Pidgin 2.7.3 here.

 The error »error reading blist.xml« happened to me the first time and when
 executing »xmllint blist.xml~«, in my ~/.purple directory, I get the
 following information:

 *** snip ***
 blist.xml~:32: parser error : xmlParseCharRef: invalid xmlChar value 29
 <setting name='core-rlaager-irchelper_topic' type='string'>&#x1d;Welkom op
 d ...
 etc. etc.
 *** snip ***

 If I manually remove the »&#x1d;« from the corresponding line in the
 blist.xml file, Pidgin starts normally.

 Please, who can fix this? If You don't feel responsible, where should this
 bug be reported instead and against what package?

 Thank You.
