The behavior shouldn't be any different on XP than on linux (or any
other platform) for this.

We use username+domain as the account's "primary key", so it isn't
going to be possible to do what you're trying to do.

This ties in a little bit with the email that Evan sent to the
development mailing list a few days ago
(http://pidgin.im/pipermail/devel/2008-August/006542.html)

Unless I'm confused, what you're trying to do is somewhat odd/wrong -
why do you have the same username at domain for both accounts?
Are the servers not federated?

Is this really just an issue of wanting to have the same account
signed it twice with a different resource?
