It looks like you signed on with a version of Gaim CVS HEAD earlier than beta 1. It wrote a status.xml file in a format that causes Gaim 1.5.0 to crash. There was a workaround in place for Gaim 2.0.0 beta 1, 2 and 3. If you start a recent version of CVS HEAD (like beta 3) and then exit (you don't have to do anything, but it's important that Gaim doesn't crash when it exits) it should fix the problem.
Although your status.xml file is pretty small, it's probably easier to just remove it.
