Lost messages with MSN

I spoke to Ethan in #pidgin about this a while yesterday.

I've noticed an issue where I'm not receiving all messages that are 
being sent to me through MSN. I fired up the official client (LM) and 
ran it alongside pidgin yesterday with the same account and watched 
messages come in via LM but not in Pidgin with the debug window not 
showing anything odd. I was able to capture a few minutes of net traffic 
with Wireshark while this was happening.

I've noticed that it doesn't matter if the person sending the messages 
is using the official client or Pidgin, as the issue happens with both. 
I only miss the messages if I'm using Pidgin, the official client will 
catch everything.

Anyone have any ideas or anything else I should try to capture, etc to 
help determine the cause of this?
