pidgin crashes with a segmentation fault when pidgin-skype is installed

Bug Description

Binary package hint: pidgin-skype

When pidgin-skype is installed, but skype isn't (or perhaps this also happens when it isn't running; I haven't checked that, because I removed the package), pidgin crashes immediately after startup. After uninstalling pidgin-skype, everything is fine. I have attached a backtrace.

Of course, pidgin-skype makes no sense without skype, but it still shouldn't crash the entire application with a segmentation fault.

This also happens if Skype isn't running. The GUI loads up, then hangs for me, but doesn't segfault.
