Only path not empty is:

                 <pref name='path' type='string' 
                 <pref name='editor_path' type='string' 

don't think that is it...

In .purple, greping for "@jabb" I see:

.purple/accounts.xml: <name>myaccount at jabber.hot-chilli.net/</name>
.purple/blist.xml:        <account proto='prpl-jabber' 
name='myaccount at jabb.im/' mode='4'/>
.purple/blist.xml:        <account proto='prpl-jabber' 
name='myaccount at jabber.hot-chilli.net/' mode='4'/>
