Pidgin does not reconnect after sleep/suspend (stays in "Connecting" state)

Bug Description

Pidgin always don't reconnect after returning from sleep mode. It displays "Available - Connecting" in status selector, but it never ends.
Selecting first "Offline" status, pressing Enter (to finish status change), then "Available" again makes it connect correctly (always).

Noticed this even in Adium (but not 100% sure that it occurs always in Adium, in Pidgin it occurs always), so maybe the problem is in libpurple.
