Problem with regular disconnects

I'm not certain- this may be covered by ticket #10744.
http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/10744

 

Basically, what happens is that connections die and reconnect. I am
currently (and regularly) connected to five separate services- MSN, two AIM
accounts, and two separate IRC servers. On a regular basis, (between thirty
and ninety minutes) connections disconnect and then require reconnection.
They do not disconnect concurrently; one MSN account may disconnect and
reconnect while the other is working, and then the other will
disconnect/reconnect forty (or whatever) minutes later. This occurs
regardless of internet access; when I take my laptop to work, or to a coffee
shop, identical behaviour occurs.

 

This behaviour occurs regularly, regardless of service. 

 

I am running Pidgin 2.6.4 on Windows 7 Release Candidate, with the following
plugins on:

 

Buddy State Notification 2.6.4

History 2.6.4

I'dle Mak'er 2.6.4

IRC Helper 2.5.1

IRC More 2.5.1

Log Reader 2.6.4

Message Notification 2.6.4

Off-The-Record Messaging 3.2.0

Pidgin GTK+ Theme Control 2.6.4

Psychic Mode 2.6.4

Release Notification 2.6.4

Text Replacement 2.6.4

Windows Pidgin Options 2.6.4

 

I am also running Avast antivirus and the standard Windows firewall. 

 

Oddly, this behaviour only began fairly recently- specifically, December 25,
2009. There was, in fact, a hardware change at that time- I changed from a
large (approximately USB-drive sized) Bluetooth dongle to a micro-USB
Bluetooth dongle. However, in testing I have removed that dongle and rolled
back driver updates pertaining to it and it does not change the current
behaviour.

 

An example (typical) debug log of this behaviour is as follows:

 

(10:34:14) oscar: Scheduling destruction of FLAP connection of type 0x0002

(10:34:14) oscar: Destroying oscar connection of type 0x0002.  Disconnect

(10:34:14) oscar: Signed off.

(10:34:14) connection: Destroying connection 067D0788

 

I am wondering if anyone else has any suggestions- I seem to be at my wit's
end.
