I got the same problem while running beta6 with GTK+-2.6.0. After a little
bit debugging, it turns out that in function gaim_gtk_convert_buddy_icon, it
used a new argument format for API gdk_pixbuf_save. Since such changes is
introduced by rev. 13036 in GDK (
which is included in GTK_2_6_8, created by rev. 13197. So my patch is just
to check if it is using a old version of GTK+ (older than 2.6.8), if yes,
try the original API format.

The code is tested on GTK+ 2.6.0 and GTK+ 2.6.9 with the image file provided
by the bug originator.

Your comments will be highly appreciated!

I would remember that if researchers were not ambitious
probably today we haven't the technology we are using!
