Comment(by clh):

 I have the same effect under Solaris. For me the issue seems to be that
 pidgin is not installed under a default system path, but does not look for
 icons in the path it is installed in.

 From truss on pidgin:
 25994:  stat64("/home/clemens/.icons/hicolor/index.theme", 0xFFBFD040)
 25994:  stat64("/home/clemens/.local/share/icons/hicolor/index.theme",
 0xFFBFD040) Err#2 ENOENT
 25994:  stat64("/usr/local/share/icons/hicolor/index.theme", 0xFFBFD040)
 25994:  stat64("/usr/share/icons/hicolor/index.theme", 0xFFBFD040) = 0

 However, pidgin is installed in some weird path under /sw/...

 Linking the /sw/... icons path to /home/clemens/.local/share/icons fixes
 the issue for me. Unfortunately i do not have access to either /usr/share
 nor /usr/local, so every user has to fix this himself.
