What version of Pidgin are you running, and with what services/protocols?

If you're running 2.10.10 or earlier, and are using an MSN Messenger 
account, you'll want to upgrade to the current version (2.10.11). 
Microsoft's blocking of the version of MSN Messenger Pidgin was claiming 
to be inadvertently caused Pidgin to generate more traffic than usual, 
trying to connect.
