pidgin-mbpurple continually tries to log in after getting credentials errors from the Twitter API

Bug Description

Binary package hint: pidgin-mbpurple


 1. Installed pidgin-mbpurple
 2. Added a new account w/password
 3. Tried to connect
 4. Got a connection error, network sniffing revealed that the Twitter API didn't like my user/password

I then hit "Reconnect" in pidgin-mbpurple, it then proceeded to continually try to authenticate itself over and over again to the twitter API which resulted in my temporary ban from the service.

If the program gets a valid and complete message from the API saying it didn't supply the right credentials it should *stop trying*.
