Hello all,

I asked on irc, but all was quiet there so I'll post this to the mailing 
list for the record.

I just had pidgin (ubuntu hardy) suddenly chew up >5GB of memory.
Is there a recent/known problem that I should be aware of, and is there 
anything I can do to constructively report the problem?

This is the first time it's happened to me that I recall.
