Description Warren Togami 2010-03-04 11:30:57 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #570535 +++

A few weeks ago AIM changed their servers in a way that breaks AIM logins with default pidgin configuration.  A workaround exists that involves turning off secure authentication.  Upstream recommends the following two patches against our pidgin-2.6.6 for a bugfix update.

We should fix this in both RHEL-4 and RHEL-5.
