[Bug 369790] [NEW] pidgin crashes window manager when showing some msn error window


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: pidgin


Because of some pidgin issue (http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/8588) my
pidgin shows a window on every startup saying "MSN-Fehler: Benutzernamen
werden zu oft geändert" (name changes to rapidly).

When I do the following steps
- click the pidgin launcher to start pidgin
- work on some other window (firefox, nautilus, ...), so the pidgin contact list that opens isn't focused but in background
- the msn issue message window opens automatically in background
- focus the msn issue window by clicking on the icon in awn / the button in panel's window list
my Compiz crashes and Metacity comes up as window manager.

When I start pidgin and focus the contact list window before the msn
issue window pops up, there's no problem at all but everything works

I attached the compiz crash log to this bug report.

Maybe this issue is somehow related to
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pidgin/+bug/340366 ...

Thanks for your help!
