Is this still a problem?
If so:
Did it happen immediately when pidgin was started?
Can you provide the output from running pidgin -d, if possible annotated with
roughly when the warning appears?
Do you have any 3rd party Pidgin plugins installed?

Comment 3 Stu Tomlinson 2008-03-11 14:17:06 UTC
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested, 
please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.
