Thanks for figuring this out.

I'm happy to report that the patch from ports/186783 successfully updates 
pidgin-sipe to version 1.18.0, and as a result pidgin once again works 
with sipe accounts.  pidgin does however still abort when I close the 
chat, i.e. go offline.

Thanks to both of you for fixing this.  I think this is worth committing 
now even if you can't immediately solve the abort on close issue; this is 
way better than the current pidgin-sipe port.  Thanks again!
