    Open Keychain Access (located in /Applications/Utilities) and there should be an application password item called 'AIM: <your username>'.

    Click on it and press the delete key, or right click and select Delete. The next time you log in, it should ask for your password - make sure that 'Remember this password in my keychain' is not selected, or you'll have to go through the process again.

    If you have different iChat accounts (eg. Jabber or .Mac), then just look for that service name instead in Keychain Access.

    Have you tried un checking the remember password option signing in and then signing back out again? that might fix it.
