Summary: Bad import of old accounts.xml

Initial Comment:
PROBLEM:I previously used Gaim 1.5.0 on Ubuntu, but am now trying to 2.0 beta 6.

Booting up Gaim without flushing ~/.gaim causes me to be unable to login to my 
AIM account. The groups and (cached?) buddy lists can be seen, but it cannot 
log in.

DIAGNOSIS: Comparing the old and new accounts.xml shows that, in Gaim 1.5.0, an 
AIM account uses

whereas Gaim 2.0 beta 6 uses

Changing the contents of the protocol tag in accounts.xml fixes the problem.

SUGGESTED FIX: Gaim should automatically recognize the obsolete "prpl-oscar" 
and change it to "prpl-aim" when it loads accounts.xml. Though deleting and 
re-adding the account solved the problem, Gaim should really fix this 

NOTES: This problem has NOT been checked against the trunk branch, as trunk 
just dumps core on me.
