XMPP Troubles

Hey guys,

It's come to my attention that we could have some serious xmpp issues  
on our hands.  I've heard several reports of certain large companies  
having their internal jabber servers knocked out by some client  
issues.  I talked to a few of you who have been hearing similar things  
from other sources.  In all of the reports I've heard about they were  
using libpurple clients (hence why I'm cc'ing the pidgin list) but  
mainly using Adium.  I realize that there are arguments to be made  
about the quality of their servers and such, but I'm not looking to  
get into any of that.  I'm finding the reports somewhat troubling and  
think this needs to be looked into.  That being said I'd like to get a  
task force of sorts together to possibly work on hunting down the  
issue this weekend.

Our tickets are:
http://trac.adiumx.com/ticket/10231 (Seems to be the more serious of  
the two)

http://developer.pidgin.im/ticket/6188 (dupe of #5484, filed against  
Adium #8834)

As always, thank you to anyone who decides to contribute, and of  
course, let me know if you need any additional resources or if I can  
do anything else to help facilitate the efforts.
