Comment(by dmdsoftware):

 I still can't believe this is a problem.  I'm on LMDE with latest
 Meanwhile and Pidgin installed, and I'm having the "users appear offline
 initially after login" issue.  I tried downloading and installing the
 specific meanwhile 1.0.2-3build2 that was provided here, but it didn't fix
 the issue.

 I eventually found someone posted the source and patches here:

 I downloaded
 and the patches (ft_fix.diff, presence_fix_v2.diff,
 1) Unzip/extract the source downloaded (meanwhile_1.0.2.orig.tar.gz)
 2) Copy the .diff files into the extracted directory
 3) patch -p1 < ft_fix.diff
 4) patch -p1 < presence_fix_v2.diff
 5) patch -p1 < status_timestamp_workaround.diff
 6) ./configure
 7) make

 Then copy the src/.libs/libmeanwhile.so.1.0.2 to /usr/lib/

 Then start Pidgin.  It Meanwhile should be fully working (all online users
 should appear as online).
