Comment (by datallah):

 I suspect what is being synced frequently is the "Last Seen" information.

 We can't really make a general change so that the configuration files are
 only saved when pidgin exits cleanly because there would be data loss if
 pidgin didn't exit cleanly.

 I'm not sure how things like this are commonly handled, but a potential
 solution could be to be able to categorize changes as "important" or not,
 and only the "important" ones would explicitly trigger an immediate(ish)
 disk sync.
 That seems kind of annoying and difficult to deal with because every
 plugin developer will need to decide whether each change is "important"
 (and my guess is that everyone is going to consider their changes
