Binary package hint: pidgin

From Tools -> Preferences -> Status/Idle

I have:
Auto/Away [check]
Minutes [choose]
Change status [check]
Change status to [choose]

However, I cannot choose which status message it will enforce on my accounts, or to just disable it.

My contacts see a "I'm not here right now", which sound ridiculous for most of my contacts, to which I speak in a language rather than English.

1. There is no menu entry to disable or change that message.

2. After I touch the mouse or the keyboard, the status is restored this status message persists.
