#16793: Pidgin crashes when system wakes, pidgin on 2nd monitor (displayport)

 Windows 7, ATI Radeon Video card.

 This occurs every time Pidgin's buddy list window is open on my 2nd
 monitor. This monitor is connected via DisplayPort.

 DisplayPort is such that when power is cut to the monitor, it is no longer
 recognized by the OS - which means when the 2nd monitor is turned off,
 annoying behavior will occur like the taskbar going back to the primary
 monitor, and icons rearranging. This occurs when the pc goes to sleep,
 turning off the monitors.

 When the PC wakes from sleep, if the buddy list was open on the 2nd
 monitor, I get a Visual C++ exception.

 I enabled debugging on the install and confirmed, but still when this
 crash occurs, the Pidgin.RPT file is not created in ~/.purple.
