no auto-scroll in Pidgin's chat window

I noticed that it doesn't auto-scroll down when any *browser page* is open ;
when Pidgin comes *alone* on screen, it auto-scrolls down alright, no matter
how long the (preceding) thread is ...!

(...) it seems to improve, but not 100%; it doesn't seem like a real error,
it has to be connected just to specific circumstances - because sometimes it
does come up scrolled down)
