Pidgin: Gaim loads, attempts to connect, then freezes and closes.

I use PortableGaim for Google Talk, and up till now it's been working fine. It's set to autologin, so I open Gaim, I get the splash screen, it attempts to connect, then it closes and gives me this error [image].

Any ideas? Just before that, I got an error saying that C++ something had asked the application to close in an unexpected way (or some such gobbledygook), but I haven't been able to recreate it.
