I just switched to Pidgin.  Wiped clean all Empathy-related dotfiles from my
home directory.  Installed Pidgin.  Configured my gmail account for Pidgin.
Looks like this:


It worked well.  Quit Pidgin.  Restarted it.  I get this indefinitely:


Going to accounts in Pidgin, I see this:


Its says "XMPP" where maybe it should say "Google Talk"?  I don't know if
that's the problem.

Anyhow, on Pidgin I have to recreate the Gtalk account every time if I want
to connect.
When I close and reopen Pidgin the account won't connect unless I remove it
and recreate it.

Maybe this is an issue with an underlying library that both Empathy and
Pidgin are using to connect to Gtalk?  Just a guess.

BTW this is Pidgin from Debian packages on Squeeze (testing).
