Pidgin: Keyboard becomes unresponsive after Status change

In Fedora 17 (i386), after changing status in pidgin 2.10.x, it is not possible to use keyboard in chat window. Keyboard becomes unresponsive. Even, I tried to compile and install newer pidgin 2.10.7, the issue remains same.

Then, after searching, I came across this bug in Pidgin (actually GTK+), which suggests to

Right Click inside typing input box of Chat window > Input Methods > (Select any input method)

After this, input from keyboard is again possible.
