  Wrong Pidgin Unity integration

Status in “pidgin-libnotify” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  pidgin-libnotify (0.14-9ubuntu2) (Ubuntu 14.04)

  What happens:
  #1 Start Pidgin, set an account and sign in (XMPP account in my case)
  #2 Buddy list > Tools > Plugins > Enable Libnotify Popups plugin with default settings (New messages, Ignore events from blocked users, Buddy signs on)
  #3 Buddy list > Tools > Preferences > Interface > Show system tray icon > [Never]
  #4 Buddy list > Tools > Preferences > Interface > Hide new IM conversations > [Always]
  #5 Close the Buddy list
  #6 Receive a message that begins new conversation
  #7 NO POPUPS APPEARS (wrong ubuntu_notify_support.patch)
  #8 Open received conversation from the Unity messaging menu
  #9 Try to close the conversation window
  #10 WINDOW IS CLOSED BY THE 2ND TRY (wrong messaging_menu.patch)
  #11 AFTER THAT PIDGIN CRASHES (because of #10)

  What is expected:
  #7 Popup notification appears after the received message that begins new conversation
  #10 The windows is closed by one click
  #11 No crash after #10
