Buddy Names show twice in Pidgin window

I wish it was as simple as collapsing or expanding the name, but it's not.  This has happened to us before, I just can't remember how we fixed it.  
The list of "buddies" has everyone's buddy name twice, exact duplicates one after the other.  If anyone knows of a fix, that would be helpful.  Just kind of annoying, it doesn't bother the function.

Keep all replies going to the list. I have it sent to you as well
because I don't know if you're subscribed.

No, that just makes the contacts bigger and shows buddy icons to the
right of their name. Here is a screen shot of what I am talking
about[0]. The first contact (as indicated by the black text) isn't
expanded and only shows the name once (blocked out for privacy). The
second contact (as indicated by the red text) is expanded and will show
the name twice. To disable that for your users, go to each user, right
click on them, and select collapse. If that isn't what your list looks
like, then I'm not sure what's up.
