How to hide Pidgin Buddy list on startup?

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I'm running Ubuntu 12.10. Pidgin starts automatically on startup, but I want the buddy list window to starts minimized. I tried this: http://www.cebuntu.com/apps/how-to-start-pidgin-and-minimized-on-startup... And this shell script: http://planet.jboss.org/post/how_to_start_pidgin_minimized_or_always_sta... but none of them work. I mean they work, the buddy list is minimized on startup, but after that, I can't open it, looks like it is forced to be minimized. Is there any working solution? (HowTos)
