I'm going to guess that it's with XMPP transports; I used to have this
happen all the time. The solution is to use a plain Jabber program to
add transport users to your buddy list (Gajim, for example) and then log
back into Pidgin (it's what I had to do about a year ago, though it may
have been fixed right now -- if so, disregard this message)
