Comment (by declaya):

 So now I tried to set my password again with only 7 characters and pidgin
 works again with icq! [[BR]]
 Of course, this is not great concearning security reasons, but at least we
 are now closer to solve the problem.
 Funny thing is that my first password (which I had for almost 7 years or
 so) had 10 symbols, so I think they surely changed something in the
 protocol or on icq's side. What reason would the pidgin programmers have
 to restrict the password in length anyway?

 But nevertheless: Thanks @dofabulous! At least it works now somehow. ;)
