It is indeed a bug. Could you please report it to the developers by
filing a ticket on Pidgin's bug tracking system? They (and us
translators) would really appreciate that! Please let us know if you
have any problems with it, and don't ever hesitate reporting bugs. :)

You can register and file a ticket here:

I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but what is the reason for a
separate locale for Argentinian Spanish? Every other free
software/open source project I know of has only one Spanish
translation and one Spanish translation team. I wonder if it is
necessary for Pidgin to have more.
