I could be mistaken, but I don't believe Pidgin itself maintains a
list named "Temporary Chats."  If I had to guess, this sounds like
something managed by your IM server.  Is this an XMPP chat room?  When
you rejoin the room, does Pidgin prompt you about creating/configuring
it again?  If so, it sounds like maybe the room IS being deleted, but
maybe there is a lingering reference to it in your buddy list and then
joining the room a second time recreates it.
