    Pidgin - keeps logging me out

    Using Lucid... and Pidgin 2.6.6.

    Pidgin keeps logging me out after a while, with a message on it's screen saying something like "you have been logged out because you logged in under another application" or something like that.

    Only problem is, I didn't log in anywhere. I have:
    - made sure to not connect to yahoo anywhere else (it's my Yahoo acnt that keeps doing this)
    - removed my account and reestablished it

    Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

    if you enable yahoo chat in your yahoo mail inbox then it will log you out of Pidgin or Empathy when you visit their website.

    Yeah but I have avoided Yahoo sites specifically.. unless some site is using their API coding and that does it.
