Upgrade from Adium 1.0.2 to 1.0.3 - OTR keys change

Description

A conversion did not properly take place from the upgrade between 1.0.2 and 1.0.3

Under ~/Library/Application\ Support/Adium\ 2.0/Users/Default a new ./libpurple directory is created, which contains otr.private_key and otr.fingerprints

These new files do not properly import the keys generated and the fingerprints trusted in earlier sessions. Therefore, a new key is generated and contacts for which OTR conversations are initiated are given the new OTR key.

In my case, the account names changed (to the login names from "1" and "2", etc.) and the protocol names changed (to libpurple-whatever). I think this should be handled more gracefully or users should at least be warned and instructed on how to change this manually. For those of us that care about OTR identities, this is important.
