Essentially MS have revoked access to an old MSN Messenger version from
roughly 6 years ago, Pidgin was identifying as this version. It's a
very recent problem, I assume that Pidgin will move to identifying as a
newer MSN Messenger or Live Messenger version, that will last until MS
decide to remove access to that.

The long term future for MSN is to move to Skype clients which is
clearly not an option for continued Pidgin usage.
