Comment (by Kenny_Duehit):

 well when i woke up this morning pidgin had crashed. But I took two
 readings during the night when it had consumed about 600mb and 780mb.

 I *think* the issue might have something to do with my wallpaper
 changer...I closed it for an hour or 2 after pidgin had reached 650mb, and
 in about 2 hours pidgins memory usage had dropped to 215mb.   I reopened
 my wallpaper changer and on the first change of wallpaper it jumped up to
 700mb. Very weird.

 Wallpaper Changer v1.90  http://www.wallpaperchanger.de/

 READING 1 (after about 11 hours)
 name: pidgin.exe *32
 CPU:  00
 Memory (private working set): 609,524 K
 Handles: 236
 Threads: 9
 USER Objects: 145
 GDI Objects: 1684

 READING 2 (after about 13 hours and the restarting of my wallpaper
 name: pidgin.exe *32
 CPU:  98
 Memory (private working set): 794,732 K
 Handles: 234
 Threads: 8
 USER Objects: 147
 GDI Objects: 1829

 note that Reading 2 was taken about 15 seconds after my wallpaper had
 changed.  I started forcing the wallpaper changes and observing the memory
 of pidgin....with every change pidgin consumed more memory.

 if you would like me to run any more tests or need more info please ask.
 more then glad to help.
