I removed emapathy and installed pidgin. Why ? because i hate empathy.

The problem is that when i start pidgin for first time after login into ubuntu. via dash or me menu, i cannot see the main window.

An icon pops up both in launcher and even in the alt+tab window switcher thing. but no main window preview even on pressing alt + ` or clicking on the launcher..

i have to right click on it launcher in dash, quit it and den again open pidgin to see the main chat window.

i don't know whats the issue here but its very irritating.
