pidgin word authentication doesn't work

whenever my facebook client automatically logs off in pidgin i have to not only provide my password but a word authentication (where it shows you a picture with letters in it arranged in a strange way and theres 2 of them seperated by a space, but whenever i enter in the letters (i know that all of the letters entered into that text box are right) but for some reason it doesn't let me back in it just prompts me again to enter the words i see and still doesn't let me in

i had to uninstall it and re-install it to get it to come back up again

is there a way to make it stop logging me off because i don't want to have to put up with this dumb word authentication stuff anymore its really annoying
