Comment (by csalgau):

 Fellow pidginers. I took the 10 minutes needed to debug this. It appears
 Yahoo! has started enforcing the user agent used by Yahoo! Messenger for
 obtaining the address book updates. I'll try to post a patch for this
 If somebody already has a building environment set up and is willing to do
 this, the details are
 Yahoo! uses User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5) in
 (latest version I believe)
 Pidgin uses User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0.
 Change this and you're home free.
