Comment (by Dardwizzle):

 Replying to [comment:11 QuLogic]:
 > The AOL developer site appears to have been taken down, so there is no
 documentation about what should be done differently here. The only
 available code I can find does the same thing that libpurple does. The
 only way to determine any differences is to reverse engineer the protocol
 again, and this is difficult because the connection is encrypted. And to
 top it all off, I just created a throwaway account on AIM (I don't have
 one; Mark might), and Pidgin was able to login without issue, so I can't
 even reproduce the problem.

 Fair enough! Hopefully the developer site will come back online or AOL
 reverts what ever they did that has caused this problem. I do appreciate
 the explanation though, makes total sense. The amount of work needed to be
 done to understand and engineer any kind of a fix is just not worth the
 effort right now.

 Thanks for updating us and supplying us with the information.
