  Pidgin seems to crash (or vanish) randomly

Status in pidgin package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: pidgin

  I will be using Pidgin throughout the day and it will vanish about 4-5
  times.  When I say vanish I mean all open chat windows, buddy list and
  even the icon in the status bar at the top of the screen.

  I have run gdm on this however when pidgin vanished and I had to quit
  running pidgin to get back to the (gdb) line then the buddy list just
  appeared but was hanging in an unresponsive state.  I got the
  backtrace and will attach it to this ticket.
