I can reproduce this on 11.2-GM-i586 with icewm and pidgin-2.6.2-3.4.3.
On first start, passwords are loaded+used and removed from my old
~/.purple/accounts.xml
and even when "Remember Password" is checked, they are never written there
again.

Bug also occurs with pidgin-2.6.4-4.1 from GNOME:Apps repo.

My workaround so far is to copy over the old accounts.xml that includes the
<password>xxx</password> lines before starting pidgin, but this is not good for
everyone and hard to maintain.
