    v3 v4  
    1 Having the exact same problem with memory-hogging whenever any of the multiple MSN/Hotmail accounts are seemingly connected for days on end--only one visibly refuses to connect to MSN with a persistent "Unable to authenticate Authentication Failure" message.  It was surprising to see the virtual size of the app skyrocket to ~1.8G after a few days.  (Not a problem on a new W7 machine with obscene amounts of RAM, but troublesome for older, far less robust systems.)
     1Having the exact same problem with memory-hogging whenever any of the multiple MSN/Hotmail accounts are seemingly connected for days on end--only one visibly refuses to connect to MSN with a persistent "Unable to authenticate Authentication Failure" message.  (The exception could be a non-Pidgin issue that I need to look into later.)

    3 Also tried rolling back to v2.10.8, but the problem with all MSN/Hotmail connections/progressive RAM-consumption still persist.  i.e., all of the same problems as those stated in the previous comments.
     3However, earlier, when the relevant "seemingly connected" accounts were auto-connected, their icons in the Accounts' drop-down menu and the "Manage Accounts" window both showed that they are fully connected (not greyed out), but the global status icon shows that one or multiple accounts were disconnected ("unplugged").  "Seemingly connected" means also that none of the contacts showed up on the lists despite seeing the colored "connected" icons.

    5 An obvious fix is to simply disconnect all MSN/Hotmail accounts, but that won't be possible for the long-term with accts required for immediate work purposes.
     5Logging in now, in any form, is impossible after the manual, individual disconnects; the remaining accounts that "connected" earlier still show no error messages, but do continue to transfer via the aforementioned TCP connection, e.g., the remote address being 65.55.246.85 in my case.  All icons remain grey, and the global icon is still "disconnected".)  But the point is that it was surprising to see the virtual size of the app skyrocket to ~1.8G after a few days.  (Not a problem on a new W7 machine with obscene amounts of RAM, but troublesome for older, far less robust systems.)

     7Also tried rolling back to v2.10.8, but the problem with all MSN/Hotmail connections/progressive RAM-consumption still persist.  i.e., *most* of the same problems as those stated in the previous comments.

     9An obvious fix is to simply disconnect all MSN/Hotmail accounts (which has been done for the time being), but that won't be possible for the long-term with accts required for immediate work purposes.

    711A stable workaround or patch would be much appreciated!
