Question #49392 on pidgin in ubuntu changed:

HyTeK proposed the following answer:
I have been working with keno on this issue.

After completely removing libpurple and pidgin from the system (via
synaptic) and compiling pidgin 2.5.2 from source, pidgin is now able to
open without seg faults.

Unfortunately there was not an update to 2.5.2 yet in the repos, and
forcing an earlier version (2.4.1) resulted in seg faults as well.
