Out of curiosity, do you hide new conversations by default?

this is happening randomly when closing any conversation window not only new ones.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Do you get the same with Lucid or Maverick? Thanks in advance.

I've just run into this bug -- pidgin crashed after I tried to close a conversation (by pressing ESC). I do hide new conversations by default (Always).

I'm also affected by this bug. It only started to happen after upgrade to Natty from Maverick (clean install.)
