If you're a Linux user, TorK offers a one-click way to launch pidgin or gaim socksified by the non-dns-leaking tsocks through tor. To get this work all you have to do is install TorK. It also has a 'failsafe' option that (with the tor 0.2.x series) will route all your systems dns traffic through Tor. Disclaimer: I'm the developer of TorK. (http://tork.sf.net)
