Hi David!

Thanks for the pointer. I turned off the check box for my MSN account in 
pidgin, then restarted pidgin.exe. So far its no showing the slow climb 
of RAM usage I was used to seeing in task manager. Thanks! :)

So, now that we seem to have isolated the issue, is there a fix? I've 
tried searchs but some of the problem results I see are from years ago. 
I'm finding quite a few links in google that point to break/fix of 
pidgin from 2009 or so.  :P

Is there a search function for the mailing list I missed?
