Comment (by renatosilva):

 I would save in some non-cache area instead, since account icon is
 permanent data. CCleaner for example cleans icon cache. I found this worth
 a look because it doesn't hurt, and the account icon path was the only
 problem I remember facing when sharing my {{{.purple}}} between Windows
 and Linux. Also, if one cares to go into hidden OS profile folders and
 make symlinks to share Pidgin config, then I thought editing
 {{{prefs.xml}}} to fix a path problem wouldn't be anything much.
