Comment(by metalzelot):

 I have the same problem since the update to Pidgin 2.7.0 and I'm also
 using KDE 4.4.3 and GTK 2.20.1 on Archlinux.

 Before the update to Pidgin 2.7.0 the bug described in ticket #2466
 affected me. This problem could always be resolved with changing the
 system tray visiblity to "never" and back to "always" (in preferences -
 interface - show system tray icon).

 If I try the same to solve this problem the pidgin tray icon disappears
 when changing the option to "never" and the area in the system tray is
 left empty. If I move with the mouse over the empty system tray area I get
 a tooltip saying "Pidgin - Available" (or whatever the status was when I
 changed the preference option). But I do not get a context menu and can
 not activate pidgin with a left click on it.

 When I set the visiblity option back to "always" a new entry in the system
 tray is created. Every time I repeat this I get one more empty system tray

 Also in the system tray settings of KDE I end up with multiple entries.
 The system tray with the wrong sized icon and multiple empty slots
 together with the system tray settings can be seen in the attached
