that did not work unfortunately.

Well, i did edit the ~/.purple/blist.xml and removed the sections of 5 
Now i patched the irc_chat_join function in 
libpurple/protocols/irc/irc.c that it waits one second before joining a 
new channel. but because of timing conditions i'm not quite sure, if 
that helps.

And that's quite a hack, because i do not know the workings in the back 
(thread stuff?, just serial? plugin-pre/post-functions?) so i will open 
a bug in the pidgin ticketsystem.

Sadly in the protocol plugin section i didn't find any hint about a 
"mass join method" which could be used for stuff like that, i think 
freenode will not the only problem (and you would have to parse 
login/chanserv/nickserv information how much channel you are allowed to 
join entirely. well, let's see :)
