It sounds like you've enabled the Dockable Buddy List feature (it
isn't enabled by default) and it's either misbehaving or causing
unexpected behavior for you.
You can disable it accessing the Tools->Plugins menu from the buddy
list, then Configuring the Windows Pidgin Options plugin to disable
the Dockable Buddy List.
