It sounds like all of the above is for the purpose of unsetting the
allow_shrink property. I'm not sure why we feel the need to do this. Does it
hurt something? Have we gotten bug reports related to having the window too

The only thing I can think of that messes up is the menu.

If that's the case, I'd rather propose that after the size is sufficiently
small, we replace all the menus with a single menu that contains them, and
call it Pidgin, or maybe just have an icon, maybe an arrow.

I'm actually ok with the rest of the changes. It is a bit weird not having a
help menu. It is a bit empty.
