If your accounts on each protocol have unique names, that is only your MSN
account has a 'Codster' group then you will only ever seen MSN buddies in
that group. If you have a group name on more than one protocol than pidgin
will display all of the buddies from every protocol in that group in the
same (visual) group.

If that visual combining if your problem then the simple solution is to
rename your groups (in the official clients, or possibly with only one
account on at a time though I haven't tested that) to have distinct names.
