Ah Ha.  Perhaps I am not experiencing this issue because I never call
'Quit' from the 'Buddies' menu but rather by Right Clicking the
Resource/Sys Tray icon and choosing 'Quit' from there.  Shutting down
this way has never generated a 'freeze' for Me.  Also, since moving to
2.5.3 I have not experienced the dreaded "Pidgin has encountered an
Error and must Shut Down" screen.  This random annoyance occurred
several times a day with all earlier versions.  :(

Experimenting just now I am able to recreate the 'freeze' issue when
selecting 'Quit' from the Buddies menu.
