That is not the impression I am getting from Casey. Trying to rectify the
two responses, and not sure how to proceed. As for posting to gnome
bugzilla, I really think this is a pretty big issue that has completely
altered previous Pidgin behavior. It seems out of place for me, a mere user,
to discuss such a core bug with the gnome windowing people, when Pidgin
developers would be far move vested in the issue, and better able to
understand the questions and follow-up that would no doubt ensue there. 
Users and devs have a different vernacular and base of understanding.

If I had the good fortune to have the skills of a Pidgin developer, I'd be
one, and probably be all over this issue like stink on a monkey.  Sadly, I'm
not. But if you really feel it would help, I will try. I'd rather someone
with a clue do that. I'm just the poor dumb user who wants it all to, as the
Apple folks love to say, "just work."
