Several XMPP accounts (certificate problem)

Right! I figured this myself.

Basically both XMPP accounts where using talk.google.com as the server, 
but it could not handle two certificates for different account on the 
same server.
So what I did was to use talk.google.com on my @gmail account and 
talk.l.google.com on the other @tcd.ie account.
Both names resolve to the same server after DNS but for Pidgin they are 
different servers.
This is a bug I think.
