blackbox around pidgin icon.

This is really trivial but I can't seem to find a fix for it. My KDE tray icons all look fine except pidgin, theres a blackbox around the icon, see here

If anyone has any ideas on how to remove it please let me know.

Just checked with KDE from current, and this does not happen with the handful of stock themes installed. I do recall having some transparency issues with KDE 4.2.4 and certain themes. Claws-mail, had this issue. Surprisingly I put it out of mind until I read your post and noticed the tray icon was now appearing correctly with the updated KDE.
