I'm guessing that a list visible was left unset, and show system tray
icon was set at never, in the ~/.purple/prefs.xml file.  The other files
don't appear to have contents that might pertain to showing the list,
and you probably don't want to have to recreate the accounts data.

If I try to run pidgin twice, the second attempt twiddles its thumbs for
a moment (there's a "starting" message in the window list), but then
aborts (it goes away, and there's only the first run pidgin running).
It seems to handle that user problem fairly well.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
