#15827: AIM takes about 10 minutes to log in, "ssl connection failed" error

Milestone:                |  Component:  AIM
  Version:  2.10.7        |   Keywords:
 Beginning about 2-3 weeks ago, I started getting the error of "unable to
 connect to authentication server: SSL Connection Failed" when attempting
 to login with AIM. I have since installed the newest version of Pidgin
 (2.10.7), and was not running any plugins.

 It usually logs in eventually, sometimes taking up to 15 minutes to
 finally log in on its own. Sometimes by disabling and re-enabling an
 account, I can force it to work, or by hitting the "Reconnect" button it
 will sometimes log in slightly faster, but something is still not working

 It only does this on my home computer, not on the machine at work. Both
 are running Windows 7. To the best of my knowledge, nothing had changed on
 my home machine when this started to occur.

 Just now, I had to disable, then re-enable, the AIM accounts in order to
 get them to connect. So it's not a complete authentication failure, it's
 temporary, or can be forced into working this way.
