i really would like to dock my pidgin to the right desktop side so that maximized windows dont hide it.
I know this has been discussed earlier but with no sattisfying result.
I know about devilspie and I already use it to stick pidgin on the right of my desktop, my current devilspie file looks like this:

(is (application_name) "Pidgin")
(is (window_name) "Buddy-Liste")
(geometry "214x1032-0+24")

the problem is when I maximize a window it still covers the buddy-list up, I know i could use allways on top but I don't want the buddylist to cover the maximized window either, so is there any possibillity to reduce the size that a maximized window would use or do you know any other way to dock pidgin like it can in windows.
