I think i've found a bug somewhere in the authentication part of gajim.
Some of my users complained they couldn't use gajim with our jabber
server but could use other clients like psi, gossip, etc. I am myself
using gajim without trouble, so this kind of surprised me.
I tested with an account known not to be able to connect using gajim and
i discovered something weird in the <auth> packet.
For example with this account:
jid: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
password: AZERTYUIOP99 (i changed the password so no worries)
the auth packet sent by gajim is the following:
notice the line wrap inside the base64 encoded data (no, it's not a
mailer line wrap, that's actually how the packet was sent)? where is
that coming from? indeed, decoding this base64 string will give a wrong
password... after asking different users it seems like this is why the
users couldn't log on all the one who had trouble logging in actually
have a line wrap in the <auth> packet and users who can log on fine don't.
