The default chat client in Karmic, the next Ubuntu release, is empathy, and it forces you to save all passwords.

Complain here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/empathy/+bug/118800
(Or let me know if you have a better idea.)

Update: This is now marked high priority for the Karmic release, so I expect it to get fixed.
  • write a wrapper script that scrubs them after the program exits?

    write a cron script that runs every day and scrubs it?

    it might be interesting to see if it works if you scrub the password file immediately after it saves them. mmm.

      Just to note, one of the people commenting on that bug report mentioned this: It's odd, given that you can clear out the password after the account has been created...but then it doesn't prompt you for one and won't connect.
