I just compiled pidgin 2.5.2 and the About dialog says the following:
Arguments to ./configure: '--prefix=/usr' '--sysconfdir=/etc'
'--disable-schemas-install' '--disable-meanwhile' '--enable-nm'
'--disable-perl' '--disable-gnutls' '--disable-doxygen'
'--with-system-ssl-certs=/etc/ssl/certs' 'CFLAGS=-march=pentium-m -O2
-pipe -fomit-frame-pointer' 'CXXFLAGS=-march=pentium-m -O2 -pipe
Print debugging messages: No
SSL: SSL support is present.

X Session Management: Enabled
Zephyr library (libzephyr): Internal

As you can see, the networkmanager support is enabled. But nothing
happens when I plug out my network cable while pidgin is running
(Networkmanager shows the change in the connection and I can see
something going on with `dbus-monitor`). I expected that Pidgin notices
the loss of connection and reconnects the protocols properly. But this
doesn't happen and it takes some minutes until Pidgin notices a
disconnection... Is there something I have to enable in order to get it
working? For example tell dbus that pidgin is allowed to listen to the
dbus events triggered by networkmanager?
I'm using www.archlinux.org and my networkmanager version is 0.6.5.
Thanks for an answer
