Is there an open ticket for window docking / maximize issues?

When Pidgin is open it is effecting other applications by not allowing them to maximize to the full resolution of the monitory occupied by Pidgin.  Even if Pidgin is minimized, the other applications will not be allowed to maximize to the full resolution of the monitor.  Only if Pidgin is closed will the other applications be allowed to maximize to the full monitor resolution.

Version 2.10.9 (libpurple 2.10.9) running on Windows 8.1.  But, I've seen this issue with other versions of Windows.



You're likely seeing the result of the dockable buddy list. This can be turned on/off in "Windows Pidgin Options" plugin. (Tools -> Plugins -> Windows Pidgin Options -- Dockable Buddy List).
