Pidgin: Open buddylist from command-line (without using system tray)

Hi All,
I am currently using Pidgin Portable 2.4.1 on windows xp machine.

In version 2.1.1, running Pidgin Portable through GUI or CLI resulted in opening of Buddy List ( if the application is already open and i am logged in )

However, while using Pidgin Portable 2.4.1, same action resulted in opening of a new instance.

Does anybody know how to open buddylist without using system tray?

The non portable

version should act exactly as you want. They even fixed an issue preventing the buddy list from appearing if the pidgin.exe was run again. But I guess for the portable version to act alike, John has to change something within thew Launcher.
