This is related to bug 964828, but can be done separately (and quickly).

MSN has started dropping connections with the application ID used by libpurple. Updating the application ID allows connections to continue. We need to port https://hg.pidgin.im/pidgin/main/rev/f6a91e6c77a4 and it would help to port https://hg.pidgin.im/pidgin/main/rev/ee51d84aacbf

Attached patch PortSplinter Review
This ports the two patches, I still get a connection refused error after this though. Maybe something else in our MSN code is too old?

Thanks for looking at this.

So is it worth landing this separately from the libpurple upgrade if it doesn't help?

Seems like we need to wait for Pidgin to update before this will work again.
