Pidgin hangs with Gnome 3.8

After the update to Gnome 3.8 Pidgin hangs on opening with no buddy list  99.9% of the time. I tried wiping out all configs and starting from scratch with no plugins, etc. but still the same. Running 'pidgin --debug' from terminal gets only the following questionable lines:

(10:40:08) prefs: Unable to find rename pref for /core/plugins
(10:40:08) prefs: Renaming /core to /purple
(10:40:08) prefs: removing pref /core/plugins/core-plugin_pack-google/domain
(10:40:08) prefs: removing pref /core/plugins/core-plugin_pack-google
(10:40:08) prefs: removing pref /core/plugins
(10:40:08) prefs: removing pref /core
(10:40:08) prefs: purple_prefs_get_path: Unknown pref /pidgin/browsers/command
(10:40:08) dbus: okkk

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Good to know I'm not alone. I'd use Empathy but it has even bigger issues. I can't even add an AOL or Yahoo account reliably to it...
