#12726: Problem with Pidgin and any other fullscreen game

 Hello, for quite a long time pidgin freezes every time I open up full
 screen game (Mafia 2, World of Warcraft, Mirrors Edge and so on).

 I followed instruction provided and I found out in log something like
 "Gdk: gdk_draw_pixbuf: assertion `GDK_IS_DRAWABLE (drawable)' failed

 It starts from the moment I open up the game and stays like this until
 restart of pidgin. However if the game is loaded and I reload pidgin
 everything works fine to the moment I close the game.

 I had to cut up a log a little because 10 second freeze logged 24mb file
 with error message repeating all over again.

 Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
 4gb ram
 2,4ghz quad core
 Nvidia geforce 8800GT with drivers 258.96 (but it also happened on the
 other version of drivers. Yes, I've tested that for the first time)
