I just installed Pidgin 2.4 and noticed that unchecking "Show buddy list entry in taskbar" seems to no longer to function correctly.
That is, when I uncheck "Show buddy list entry in taskbar", I expect there to be no icon in the running programs icon area of the Windows taskbar. However, when running 2.4, the icon is always displayed -- checking and unchecking seems to have no effect.
As a test I just re-installed Pidgin 2.3.1 and the function works correctly, so the problem seems to be only when I run 2.4.
Did the Pidgin folks break something in 2.4? Or does Extended Prefs need an update for that function to work correctly in 2.4? Or is it just me (shudder at the thought)?
