#14738: Problems with GUI on XFCE
Reporter:  dibo    |        Type:  defect      
  Status:  new     |   Component:  pidgin (gtk)
 Version:  2.10.0  |    Keywords:  xfce xubuntu

 I am using Pidgin for a long time on Ubuntu (GNOME) without any problems.
 But now I changed GNOME to XFCE (Xubuntu) and can't normally use Pidgin:

 1. Often when I send message to buddy I don't see my messages and get 100%
 of CPU. After a few moments, everything returns to normal and my messages
 are showing up.
 2. Always when I get new message I have 100% of CPU until I read this
 message. It seems that this is small icon which is drawing on buddy list
 in right-top corner (because when I click on it then CPU return to normal
 state), but I have this same problem even if main window is hidden so
 maybe this is not only "drawing" problem.
 3. I have messages in tabs but often when I get new message, new window is
 opening with buddy which I am talking in first window. When this situation
 occurs then Pidgin is closing after few moments
 4. Often when I close last tab I get empty message window but it should
 close when I close last tab.

 I must always close Pidgin when I go out from my computer because CPU is
 going crazy when I get new message. Should I post this bugs or can I
 somehow reconfigure XFCE?

 Should I split this problems to separate tickets and generate log for


 Xubuntu 11.10 64bit with XFCE 4.8 (probably GTK 2.XX)
 Pidgin 2.10.0
