Is this crash a known bug of which you are speaking about?

I do not personally see a problem. The binaries on my PC total over 16MB, while
you may only have icq and irc buddies I would expect you have the possibility,
at a moments notice, to add MSN, AOL, Jabber contacts to name a few. Plus there
are images, windows, logs, plugins and connects.
I have a 2GB good desktop machine so 16MB is roughly 0.8% of my total RAM usage.
N.B. I am not a Pidgin developer.
