Problems connecting to Jabber

Two of us upgraded from Pidgin 2.6.0 to 2.6.1 recently, and lost the ability 
to talk to our internal jabber server. Connections would hang on login. This 
seems to have been a known issue with the new version of libpurple, and a 
"fixed" version of libpurple was made available. We tried the new version of 
libpurple a few days ago, and the behavior changed. Now we get "Server 
closed the connection" and get immediately disconnected. Is the new version 
of libpurple working for others, or is there something else we need to do to 
have it fix our Jabber problem?
