There's a little group of people on the Ubuntu forums wondering why
pidgin regularly uploads a sizeable amount of data to the msn servers,
even when not chatting with anyone.

Quoting one poster:

  "wireshark says i'm sending and recieveing lots of msnms packets
   between me and which will lookup to 

   I receive 76 bytes then send 916 bytes over and over until I've sent
   at least a megabyte and often much more i think."
