Summary: buddy description freezes on screen

Initial Comment:
I'm not sure how exactly to describe it, but I can tell
you how to replicate it so you know what I'm talking about.

Follow the steps:

1) Go to, and position
a convo window and buddy list, the same way I displayed
in the pic.

2) Highlight a buddy, and wait for the description for
the buddy to come up (

3) Double click on the buddy. The description will
still be up.

the buddy list. (

4) If done right (and this happens many times, a lot by
accident), the box will stay up, as you will see here: Notice how I don't
even have any convo/buddy windows open.

The only way I can remove it is by opening the buddy
list back and, and moving my mouse over it. But many
people can easily run into this glitch and not know
what to do (I just had to explain to someone else how
to remove the box).

Yes, I know the buddy in step 1 is different from step
3 and 4, but I had ran into other problems -_-

Sorry for the whole step-by-step thing, I just didn't
know how exactly I could describe it without this format :S
