Fwd: Pidgin

While I do no have a solution for the use of a pac file, you could untick "Use 
default gateway" within the "TCP/IP (Internet protocol)" settings of the VPN 
connection.  This will prevent your Internet traffic from going via the VPN and 
just go via your own gateway/router.

Is that an option?
