Comment(by darkrain42):

 I just committed a fix for this, which will hopefully be in 2.6.6.  Anyone
 impacted by this will need to clean out their buddy list manually after

 To do so, with pidgin closed, open ~/.purple/blist.xml (actual location
 may vary; see [wiki:FAQ] for details) and search for entries that look
         <buddy account='your-xmpp-account at example.org/resource' proto
              <name>duplicated-buddy at buddies-domain.org</name>

 The key thing that differentiates these buddies from the valid entries is
 that they will not have any settings (or last_seen information).  e.g.,
 this is what an actual entry from my blist.xml looks like (names changed):
                 <buddy account='foo at jabber.org/desktop' proto='prpl-
                     <name>me at dev.mydomain.org</name>
                     <setting name='last_seen'
                     <setting name='icon_checksum'
                     <setting name='buddy_icon'
