No, all on a local disk. The only thing special here is that the filesystem is encrypted:
[ra at hamburger ~]$ cd /home/ra/.purple/logs/sipe/ra at ok.is%2cok%5cra/.system
[ra at hamburger .system]$ df -h .

No, nothing. And disk and/or filesystem errors would have thrown up red flags for me and would have put my pidgin issue way down on the things to worry about list :)
Expect gdb backtraces the next time this happens :)
