Pidgin with Office Communicator - Sipe: Read Error

In Debian Wheezy, you can install the Lync / Office Communicator / Sipe plugin for Pidgin.

But, even with the correct login information you get a Read Error when trying to connect.

You need to set an environmental flag before running Pidgin to overcome this. Here's a script that does it:

 export NSS_SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV=0
 pidgin
unix unix-pidgin
