Summary: MSN connection problem

Initial Comment:
Can anyone shed some light on an issue I have with Gaim on windows connecting 
to MSN. I can not connect to MSN either by regular protocol or even using the 
HTTP method. I however can connect to MSN using trillian. I would rather use 
gaim, but because it won't connect I am stuck using trillian for msn. I am not 
even sure this is a bug, but I'm not getting any help in the support threads, 
so I decided to open it in here opening some the developers would have an idea.

Here is the error I am getting. 
Connection error from Notification server: Reading error 
Here is the debug log:

Any help would be greatly appreciated, or even a patch to fix this. This has 
been occuring for a while now even with the new Beta 6, but basically has been 
happening since beta 2.x came out. Is it the version of MSN gaim is based on 
compared to what trillian is based on?

Anyone have any updates on this, or a workaround?  Still puzzeled why
Trillian works and Gaim does not.  Is there a way to get gaim updated to
the same version of MSN that Trillian is using to test if it's a version of
MSN that is the problem (possible version blocking at the firewall?)?

if it helps at all for me that exact error occurs only when I'm behind the
corporate firewall.
At home  GAIM connects.  Trillian and native MSN messenger both work fine
from behind the firewall.  Started noticing this some time around

I got the exact same problem with gaim 1.5.0

I'm under Slackware 11.0 and I compile gaim from source.

Any idea why Trillian works where as gaim does not?  Or anything idea how
to fix this?

At first, I thought that the the "Windows socket error #10036" was
actually the problem, but it turns out that is just the old contents of
'errno' - since 'len' is 0, it doesn't apply.

It looks like he server is simply hanging up.
