 account would do better than crash :)

 Of course. ;-)

 The problem is that there are currently two ways to distinguish an ICQ
 from an AIM account.
 So the account is initialized as AIM, but later Pidgin will guess it's an
 ICQ account (because the user name is a sequence of digits) and offer the
 "Set mood" function, which has never been initialized.

 There is a patch for Pidgin 3.0 (see ticket #13883) which will resolve
 this ambiguity -- and prevent this crash -- anyway, so I didn't concern
 myself further with this bug.
