[Fixed] Pidgin: 2.7.1 not setting the environment variables !

This involves language switching but also %PATH%, %PURPLEHOME% and all the other env. vars! (I'm actually surprised it's even running !)

The (Unicode NSIS) System::call's don't seem to deal with:

System::Call 'Kernel32::SetEnvironmentVariableA(t, t)***********'

If I remove the A's, and re-compile language switching works again, and all the other env.vars are set properly again !

Mine runs without problems. I had a look at it in ProcessExplorer and PURPLEHOME is set to K:/PortableApps/PidginPortable/App and PATH is set to K:/PortableApps/PidginPortable/App/spellcheck. Looks ok from here.
