On a fresh, clean installation of Pidgin 2.10.6 and OTR 4.0.0 that is
indeed what happens, and the "Don't log OTR conversations" checkbox in
the OTR plugin configuration works appropriately.

On my system (which had previously had OTR 3.2.1 installed, and that
checkbox unchecked), the checkbox works as I described it
earlier--resetting itself to checked always, with the OTR plugin
ignoring the value of the checkbox.

I was able to get it to work: I first disabled the OTR plugin, then
restarted Pidgin, then enabled the OTR plugin.  Now the checkbox works
as expected, and as in a fresh installation.  So this seems to be
something to do with upgraded installations only, not new ones.
