Output of pidgin -d
Description of problem:
Logging in to google talk account fails because of handshake failed. When I try to log in on rhel 8.1 (pidgin-2.13.0-5.el8) it works properly.
I run pidgin with -d and the conversation and the communication with server looks like this:

You can find output from the whole run attached.

Connection fails becouse of ssl handshake failed

There is the same version of pidgin on 7.8 as it is on 7.7 (pidgin-2.10.11-8.el7.x86_64) so this bug still persists.
RHEL 7 is approaching its Extended Life Cycle Support phase. Given that this bug isn't present in RHEL 8, and there's no customer case associated with this for RHEL 7, I am inclined to WONTFIX it.
