Pidgin will sometimes connect in the away state if you have chosen for it to do so.
When signing on, all the previous messages sent to you offline are then shown ( although pidgin doesn't tag them as such), and then pidgin attempts to auto respond with an away message to the senders of the offline messages. Specifically this is with AIM as that is mostly what I use, but it might affect others.
I think the official client is able to notice an offline message versus a regular one, but i don't know if it auto-responds when away. since I have used pidgin exclusively for quite a while now.
Received offline messages should be marked in some way as being offline, and pidgin shouldn't auto respond
