Bug Description

Binary package hint: pidgin

When trying to start conversation over bonjour with pidgin on maverick, there is a message that says:"Unable to send the message, the conversation couldn't be started."
This is the link to the upstream bug.

I tested the patch provided by datallah and it works great.

I created a package containing the patch in my ppa here:
