debug messages from pidgin session

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101

My instant messenger pidgin (version 2.10.9-4.12.1) refuses to connect to yahoo
servers anymore, since a few weeks already.
I would bet this is not related to the recent heartbleed bug(s) in the SSL
layer, since I have this problem before the spread of that problem.
After setting pidgin to report debug messages into a file I get this exact
error messages:
(09:04:19) yahoo: Login Failed, unable to retrieve login url: Error reading
from Input/output error
(09:04:19) connection: Connection error on 0xb8b5ce90 (reason: 0 description:
Error reading from Input/output error)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start pidgin
2. try to login to the (yahoo) messenger account

Actual Results:
pidgin reports error about "Error reading from Input/output

Expected Results:
login to the desired account

gnutls packages are all up to date (versions 3.2.4-2.18.1).
Openssl is up to date, as well (version 1.0.1e-11.32.1)
So I think the issue is not related to the current SSL bug (heartbleed).

Curious thing: at the same time, kopete succeeds in connecting to the same user
account (yahoo messenger user). So there isn't any issues with the account
(like being blocked somehow).

Some user at this thread on the forums:
states he does NOT have this issue with the same pidgin version but on Ubuntu.
