Because it is Pidgin. Seriously, Pidgin has its own armada of bugs. Try Miranda, Trillian, and the other million avaliable clients. Sadly Pidgin is like this (I also use it that's why I say this.) – Shiki Jul 28 '10 at 6:22

Apparently there was a patch released that solves this issue before you even asked this question.

I'm not certain if it works with Pidgin 2.7.7, but I'm trying it out now. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable in the field of applying patches would experience more success here.
