The second will actually be using only a few kilobytes of memory, most
of that memory is shared with the parent.  That process has nothing to
do with "booting"; it is a helper for DNS lookups when Pidgin needs to
look up domain names (such as when connecting to an account).  It is
normal and you should not worry about it.
