For the likes of Pidgin and Gaim you're better off using the patched version 
of tsocks. 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.
