    You dont give enough information.
    What were you doing exacly?
    What is running in the background (Only imporant if its a real bug but I guess it isnt so you can leave this out for now)

    If I read your text correctly I see that you: "Make a account for the XMPP Protocol" and that Pidgin makes it a Gtalk one?
    If I understand you correcly I have to say that this is a very weird problem.
    But to fix just change the Account and then it will work fine..

    Well, there is a accounts.xml file in the home/usr/.pidgin
    folder.
    You can just open that with Vi/Nano/Pico/Emac of whatever texteditor.
    And change it to the type you want.
    Hope that helps.
