No.

the .recently-used.xbel is not part of pidgin...A quick search shows this to be a part of GIMP.

The gtk-2.0 could be from any number of apps that use GTK. (Gimp does also)

Neither of these are present on my system before or after I use pidgin.

Make sure you are checking while pidgin is NOT running.

I don't see those files too, if you're right how do you know pidgin's making those files?

When you set/change the

When you set/change the avatar, gtk-2.0 is written immediately to disk.

If you send a file, .recently-used.xbel is created when pidgin is closed.

Wait, do you mean "AppData"

Wait, do you mean "AppData" or "Application Data" for the first one?

You're right about the "recently-used.xbel" one but I don't know about the other one. I don't have enough priveleges on the computer to go into the "Application Data" folder.

I digress and confirm.

The gtk-2.0 folder is created on avatar change. It contains one file (gtkchooser.ini) with the following text:

[Filechooser Settings]
LocationMode=path-bar
ShowHidden=false
ExpandFolders=false

Also, .recently-used.xbel is created (on close after file transfer) with the following information:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"??>
<xbel version="1.0"
xmlns:bookmark="http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/desktop-bookmarks"
xmlns:mime="http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/shared-mime-info"
></xbel>

[fixed angle brackets from throwing off code - moderator PP]

These are CONFIRMED.

Yep, both bugs are real.

Congrats, would you like a medal?

P.S. I'm not being sarcastic. Blum

Can you let me know the fix?

I know this is an outdated post and all John, but I am running into the exact issue with a program I am working on with the same two files, what was the fix?

just

compare the launchers in WinMerge and you will know what changed.

got it I think

Actually after I posted U took a look at the source code for the Pidgin launcher and think I figured out what was done, thanks though!
