I thought of the files that you got errors about; gaim_auth.png, gaim_cool.png, gaim_error.png and so on. Don't chown the files; chmod them instead....

    chmod changes the actual permissions of a file, instead of its owner/group. See the texinfo on chmod (run "info chmod") for more info on it.

    Did you try searching for the files ("find / -name gaim_auth.png")?

    It says in the same file, if you check the link to "Note File permissions::".

    Do you still get the "unable to load stock pixmap..." errors?

    Otherwise, there seems to be something with MCOP as well. Unfortunately, I don't know what MCOP is, but it seems to be complaining that /tmp/mcop-troy isn't owned by you, so try chowning it to you.

    If you run it from a terminal, does it give you any error before it crashes?
