OK yep I would have to agree. They are trusted but not in the store.

You are correct if they put them in the store then login is fine. Its an OK 
process to copy these to the Pre form a working version of pidgin.

What I am trying to do though is emulate what pidgin does by asking you to 
accept the cert and if you do it then puts it in the store.
If that could be done on the Pre it would be much easier.

The other issue is if the cert is not in the store the Pre kind of just 
hangs because libpurple is trying to GUI prompt the user to accept or deny 
the cert.
