    Pidgin growing exponentially

    I don't know if anyone else have had this problem, but it seems that Pidgin on my computer has turned into a sentient being and is now feeding of my Xubuntu, thus growing exponentially. It's taking over my desktop more and more. It keeps growing and I can't re-size it back to a smaller window. It is now covering most of my Desktop 1920x1080.

    Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can fix it?

    If not. Should I kill it by uninstalling it, or let it live and see what happens? I'm afraid that if I let it live, it would start to grow outside it's habitat and try to take over the world.
