• Had the same problem today. 🙁
    Resorted to the same solution after a bit of “braging” the yahoo staff :))

  • Just upgrade to 2.5.7 and all your problems will magically go away… 😛

  • Thats what i did 🙂

  • Yeah, and if you edited /etc/hosts, you have to un-edit it for the upgraded Pidgin to work.

  • Editing the hosts file would have been the lamest hack ever!
