Slowly but surely I'm making progress on Seahorse's Gaim plugin. At the moment it loads and has working preferences. I fixed a memory corruption bug on loading and unloading the plugin multiple times. It seems the plugin_destroy method was getting called instead of the plugin_unload method so a private structure wasn't being cleaned up properly. Crisis averted.
I'll move on to adding the necessary UI to the conversation window next. This might get delayed because instead of holding my prof's hand through MATLAB for our third paper at the upcoming APS/URSI International Symposium I'll be doing the interfacing from MATLAB to FORTRAN and back myself. <deity> bless reusable code.
