Pidgin 40+ popups "Unable to add buddy 1 for an unknown reason."

Pidgin is going nuts when I log into AIM. It won't give me my contact list and instead just gives me 40+ windows saying, "Unable to add buddy 1 for an unknown reason."

It is totally unusable this way. Oddly enough, it worked without incident this morning.

Anyone have any ideas? The Pidgin bugtracker reveals nothing, neither does a Google search.

I really do not want to have to switch back to Trillain.

Weird. I log in with AIM Express, log out, then log back in with Pidgin, and it's fixed.

WTF man.

Apparently the error is caused by the AIM server returning a blank Buddy List. Try logging into AIM using AIM or AIM Express, then log back in with Pidgin. It repaired the problem for me.
