in pidgin_status_box_size_request in statusbox.c, it's hard-coded to
request at least 34 pixels, the size of the buddy icon plus spacing.

I may change that value to be set by the GTK+ theme, as people are
unhappy with it, at least in the context of the conversation window.

For a plugin, you should be able to call gtk_widget_set_size_request
to override that hard-coded value.
