    Hello!

    I downloaded the win32 self extracting from http://pidgin-encrypt.sourceforge.net/. I installed the plugin and encryption works fine if I enable the checkbutton to load the plugin.

    But if I restart pidgin, it crashes on startup (no messages, just the windows standard dialog for segfault). If I remove the encrypt.dll from the pidgin plugin directory, pidgin starts up but without the plugin of corse.

    What should I do to solve this problem?

    Regards,
    Simon
