Whenever I activate the plugin I get a bunch of error messages (two for each account for some reason) saying "Error (2) changing access mode for file: id Cannot
save key."

According to this:
http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-bugs-dist@lists.debian.org/msg349307.html

Pidgin doesn't look for id.priv in .purple but in .gaim directory. So it complains it cannot change the permissions.

I have verified that the configuration box of the plugin points to the correct directory (i.e. .purple)

This is running pidgin 2.1 from portableapps.com in Windows XP.
I created a ticket in the pidgin portable encryption plugin project: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=780537&aid=1773484&group_id=151265

and they claim it's a bug in the plugin itself and not their packaging.

    User blanked the key file directory box in the plugin config, and problem disappeared.
