Default pidgin amsn kopete

I've been using pidgin for quite a longtime without many problems, but lately it keeps disconnecting (it did in the past, but not so often).
Is this a router/pf related problem or a bug?
I've tried to install amsn, but it does not connect.
I've tried kopete, and seems to work fine (hasn't disconnected yet), but trying to open the configure window in the in the window that opens with alt+space (I use ion3) it crashed down the whole X server. It works if I open it in a full screen window (although a few buttons are still not visible. Why do they make everything that big, by the way?).

Is it possible to make pidgin or amsn work properly?
Has anyone experience with kopete in a non-kde environment?

tks

ps. I've just found out that kopete does not like me to input accented chars, and to use chinese input I guess I'd have to install skim, since now I only have scim. I'd rather go for an easier solution it it's possible.
pps. amsn does not like scim either. Now I remember why I chose pidgin at the time... So, at this point, if anyone knows why pidgin keeps disconnectin it'd be great.

This is what the log says when pidgin disconnects:
Code:

MSN is a proprietary protocol, they can make changes that break open source clients at any time...

You're using Pidgin 2.3.1, the latest version is 2.5.6.
You're using OpenBSD 4.3, the latest version is 4.5.

Pidgin 2.5.4 is available with OpenBSD 4.5, it is also possible to upgrade the port manually.. albeit that's unsupported.

Have you tried using 4.5 yet? 4.3 isn't officially supported anymore.. MSN works (..normally) in later versions of the Pidgin port just fine.

ehm, yes.
Before I do an upgrade I will have to buy a big external hard drive to dump all of my system. Last time when I've tried to upgrade to 4.4 I had problems and at the end had to reinstall everything, and now I don't have the time for it.
I think I'll have to make do for a while.
Thanks anyway
