Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 472582
no longer honoring conversation window hiding preference

Even if Hide new IM conversations is set to Always pidgin is popping up a window.
Between two machines running pidgin-2.5.2 with the AIM protocol I was unable to reproduce this bug.
After I removed ~/.purple and recreated my accounts it works again. Not a great upgrade experience but at least it is working now :)
Did you save the .purple before blowing it away? There is likely a bug here, but we will never know what it was without your data.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
