Description of problem:
When I suspend and resume my laptop, or move between networks, the network
connection changes and Pidgin is no longer connected to the servers. However,
it doesn't notice this until a significant amount of time has gone by, so I
frequently lose incoming IMs during the period that Pidgin incorrectly thinks it
is connected. To work around this I need to manually disconnect and reconnect
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Pidgin, connect to server
2. Move from wired to wireless network
3. Have someone send me a message
Message is lost.
Pidgin notices the network connection drop and refreshes server connections when
the network comes back.
