Comment (by jelara):

 No, you're definitely not the only one. I also have qualms about this:
 besides the defects you mention, when I type ' + s, it gives me "ś",
 instead of "'s", which happens normally on Windows. I am already used to
 this form of typing, so this is very, very annoying.

 Shouldn't Pidgin (or GTK+) use the OS' native keyboard handler? After all,
 every user is already used to the way the keyboard behaves in all other

 Still happens in Pidgin 2.10.11 (libpurple 2.10.11)

 Replying to [comment:3 majortom]:
 > I hate to bump a thread, but I installed Pidgin once more on Windows
 today and this bug is still well alive (Pidgin 2.10.3 (libpurple 2.10.3)).
 > Am I the only US-intl layout user?
