Pidgin icon not showing up in system tray

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I uninstalled indicator-messages because I'd rather have separate icons for my programs. The problem I have now is that pidgin icon won't show up (while others do, like empathy, skype and so on). Or to be more precise, it shows up but is transparent. If you have any idea about how to fix that, it's appreciated. I tried to relaunch pidgin once or twice but it doesn't change anything. (HowTos)
