#4722: 500Meg+ memory leak in vista

 On a fresh install of Pidgin and Vista (fully patched home premium) memory
 will be taken up to over half a gig, will also way over-utilize the
 network, and will also keep the proc pegged at about 50%.

 I am currently only using yahoo IM, and only happens after about a few
 hours with it minimized to tray. I *can* duplicate the error, it happens
 with or without plugins, no other program leaks like this in windows, but
 takes several hours to surface. Spyware S&D, Ad-Aware, AVG, and Computer
 Associates AV all come up clean.

 Pidgin does not crash and works fine other then the leak even while using
 the 500M. I didn't see anything in the error log with the level set to
 "all", but I have since restarted it so I'll need to wait again until it
 leaks to make sure.

 My system specs are as follows:

 *Acer Aspire 5520 Laptop

 *Vista Home Premium

 *Pidgin 2.3.1

 *1.8G Athlon X2

 *1G DDR2

 *GeForce 7000M (128M shared)

 This is one of my first bug submits so if you need me to run anything to
 help, I will. I'm not sure if the tracker will email me on response so
 email me @ jijinmachina[at]ya.hoo.com
