#6352: Pidgin mangles multi-line messages?

 I'm running Pidgin on Ubuntu Hardy, and I use it over XMPP. I noticed that
 when I get messages with more than one line, all the lines but the first
 get mangled: the first few words seem to be skipped.

 For example, when somebody sends me:

 first line
 foo_bar: baz
 foo: bar baz
 foo/bar: baz
 foo: bar_baz
 foo:bar baz
 foo bar baz
 baz: bar foo
 (just in case it doesn't like foo)

 what I get is:

 first line
 doesn't like foo)

 The first line is always fine.

 My correspondent is running Pidgin 2.4.3, I have 2.4.1, and the mangling
 occurs in both directions. Another correspondent of mine uses Miranda, and
 messages go through fine (again, in both directions!)
