#15380: pidgin not automatically reconnecting

 Running under Win7 SP1 x64. Pidgin seems to quickly and easily "give up"
 when trying to auto-reconnect after having been disconnected. I experience
 a lot of disconnections--suspend/resume, moving among connections (my home
 router bonds cable, DSL, and 3G connectivity), physically moving among
 wifi APs, starting and stopping various kinds of VPNs. So I often notice
 Pidgin is only partially connected to my 6 IM accounts on as many
 services. There's no rhyme or reason among them--sometimes one manages to
 maintain connectivity, sometimes another. Eventually (if I don't pay
 attention and keep clicking reconnect), they'll all be disconnected and
 disabled and non-functional.
    I've seen old tickets mentioning this, but they all seem to have been
    I know Pidgin will do some limited automatic attempts to reconnect, but
 it's not enough. (If I use a native IM client for any of these services,
 they will auto-reconnect, so I know it's possible.)
    Is there any way to have Pidgin keep trying to connect, even if as
 diffidently as once every ten minutes (forever)? And to allow the end user
 to tell it to never disable an account?
