Comment (by vauran):

 Thanks, datallah.

 Wonderful news! I was able to open pidgin with that command and navigate
 to Tools>Preferences>status/idle.

 The user had "Status at Startup" checked with "Status to apply at
 startup:" set to offline. I'm assuming that this caused a loop with the
 bug you mentioned where it crashes when disconnecting. The user would log
 on, have their status set to offline, and would crash due to that.

 I have since unchecked the Status at Startup option for the user and
 confirmed they can open and close Pidgin and connect to their account

 Thanks for the quick help on this. Happy user = happy me :).
