Why is orphans group created?

My friend says "something strange is going on with my pidgin buddy list, new
folders keep getting made titled "orphans" and random people are in it"
She means a group named "orphans" is being created and buddies from her
buddy list (already in other groups) are being added to the orphans group.
I grepped through the code and found this in
aim_ssi_addbuddy(od, cur->name, "orphans", NULL, alias, NULL, NULL, FALSE);
A couple lines above I found a nice comment :-) :
/* This will kind of mess up if you hit the item limit, but this
function isn't too critical */
I'm not familiar enough with libpurple code to diagnose the problem. Any
suggestions? Is there an easy fix? Is this a known issue? I tried to
search the bug tracker before posting.
This is with an AIM account in Pidgin 2.2.0 on Windows XP SP2.
