Yeah, this is a known problem. The "fix" is to just delete the libmsn*
files from /usr/lib/gaim/ so gaim doesn't load them anymore during it's
startup. Since I seriously doubt that it would be working correctly at
this time anyways its not quite a big loss.
(If its still working you might need to consider reverting to 0.70)

If you depend on your MSN contacts and/or need IM with MSN support you
will have to find anything else that is endorsed by MS. I recommened
using another protocol.
