This shouldn't happen. I just tested this scenario (by faking LinuxMint,
not actually running it) and can't reproduce it.

What does this command return:
sudo dpkg --purge pidgin-ppa

Good point. I just fixed the link. Sorry about that. While I'd like you
to test the purge command above (so I can fix any bugs), either way
you'll need to install the new 0.0.4 pidgin-ppa package.
