#15175: Certain Yahoo account keeps getting locked out on login

Component:  Yahoo!/Yahoo! JAPAN  |   Version:  2.10.4

 I use 3 Yahoo accounts in pidgin, connection is established through an ssh
 proxy (SOCKS 5).
 Every other day, I get an error while logging in:
 "Account locked: You have been logging in too frequently.  Wait a few
 minutes before trying to connect again.  Logging into the Yahoo! website
 may help."

 Logging into yahoo website works without a hitch and I can use the JS
 messenger inside yahoo mail UI. After I log out of the website, I still
 can't log in using Pidgin for at least half an hour (maybe longer, haven't
 timed it)

 It's worth noting that it's always the same account, never either of the
 other two..

 Using Fedora's build of pidgin:
 Pidgin 2.10.4-1.fc16 (libpurple 2.10.4)
