Works, thanks a lot mate.
Someone able to add new ICQ-contacts to your buddy list with this patch? I can't but I'm not sure if this is related to this bug. OTOH with this patch I can login to ICQ again and talk with my already added contacts...

modified patch version for pidgin 2.4.2
The original patch didn't work for me.
I had to modify the 0x010A to 0x010B; see attachment.

Same fix, but for pidgin 2.3.1 (stable x86)
Since the very same problem occurs with pidgin 2.3.1, I created a patch and a fixed ebuild for that version.

There's an official patch at http://www.pidgin.im/pidgin-2.4.2-icq6.patch
It's slightly different from all patches submitted in this bugreport but it's the official patch currently...
pidgin-2.4.3 was released, which contains a fix for this bug. See http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/ChangeLog
they should be releasing 2.4.3 any time now.. if they don't, I'll put a version of 2.4.2 with the patch in
its in the tree...
