This is most likely a problem with the encoding of data provided by the 
jabber.org IM service (we had some database issues when we migrated from 
ejabberd 1.x to ejabberd 2.x, resulting in incorrect encoding of contact 
nicknames). I've pinged Jens about this off-list and I think I've fixed 
the problem for him.
