pidgin-otr 4.0.2 fixes a heap use after free bug. This is already patched in the 4.0.1-r1 ebuild, but 4.0.2 is also already in the tree, so I'd prefer we stabilize the new release.
Arches please test and mark stable =x11-plugins/pidgin-otr-4.0.2 eith target KEYWORDS:

Maintainer(s), please cleanup.
