Translated ICQ/SSL error message in log

I just tried the option "Require encryption" in account settings for my
ICQ account (Pidgin 2.7.7, manually compiled for openSUSE 11.3/x86_64).
This does not work for ICQ. The error message is
"You required encryption in your account settings, but one of the
servers doesn't support it."
In Pidgin's debug window I see the following message:
(08:17:34) *oscar:* startOSCARSession was missing tlsCertName: <?xml
deleted private (?) data
--]</ts><host>184.108.40.206</host><port>443</port><cookie> [-- deleted
private (?) cookie --]
(08:17:34) *connection:* Connection error on 0xf26420 (reason: 4
description: Sie haben Verschlüsselung in Ihren Kontoeinstellungen
gefordert, aber einer der Server unterstützt keine Verschlüsselung.)
I have two questions:
1. What does the message "startOSCARSession was missing tlsCertName"
mean? Doesn't ICQ support TLS? Or is this some kind of certificate
2. Why is there an translated error message in log file? I think, it
would be better (for people, who will read such logs) to have the
original error message in log file. May be, we can do this with
_N("You required encryption in your account settings, but one of
the servers doesn't support it.") in
libpurple/protocols/oscar/oscar.c:1294 and with selective
_(message) calls of this message. I think, the errror should stay
translated in the notification window, but untranslated in the
log. As an alternative, two seperate error messages (for users in
notification windows and for developers in the log) can be used.
