#17237: Pidgin opens a focus-stealing window on unsolicited type='headline'
XMPP/Jabber messages
--------------------+--------------------
 Reporter:  jonasw  |      Owner:  deryni
     Type:  defect  |     Status:  new
Milestone:  2.12.1  |  Component:  XMPP
  Version:  2.12.0  |   Keywords:
--------------------+--------------------
 When a Jabber account receives an unsolicited type='headline' XMPP
 <message/> with a body, pidgin opens a focus-stealing window (sceenshot
 attached).

 This is actively exploited by spammers. The fact that it steals focus is
 bad for the user experience.
