As I expect that it is too late to solve this in jaunty (what a pity!)
the easy workaround is to go to the pidgin plugins configuration, edit
the configuration of libnotify notifications and disable some events. If
you have 100 contacts you'd probably be annoyed by their login/logout
messages anyway.
