 If I tried to place users in different groups than the group the server
 places them I did it unknowingly. I just want to group the users which are
 in more than one group to one cantact. Like I would do if I have a buddy
 with multiple accounts (icq, msn, so on) and group them in one.
 But maybe when I do this pidgin tries to move the contact to the group
 where it is still a member an is shown as a seperate user. It is a bit
 confusing to explain and I hope my english is good enough to this.
 My favourite behaviour would be that pidgin does not send anything to the
 server when I group my buddies but stores this information only locally
 ans restores it at restart.
 How does this grouping buddies into contacts works when there are multiple
 protocols? Does pidgin send group information to all servers?
 Anyway many thanks for the fast answer an good to read that there is still
 worked on this.
