Comment (by jeff):

 msim_parse() is being called endlessly, trying to parse the same buddy
 presence update message, because the 15K receive buffer is full. I ran
 Adium with the debug log enabled and it generated a 165,305-line 213 MB
 log file before I killed it. Msimprpl does actually detect that the read
 buffer is full:
 17:56:07: (Libpurple: msim) buffer at 0 (max 15360), reading up to 15360
 17:56:07: (Libpurple: msim_input_cb) received 15360 bytes, pushing rxoff
 to 15360, over buffer size of 15360
 17:56:07: Connection Disconnected: gc=b02e190 (Read buffer full)
 17:56:07: <PurpleMySpaceAccount:6e543f0 3>:msimprpl at xyzzy.cjb.net
 accountConnectionReportDisconnect: Read buffer full
 17:56:07: (Libpurple: msim) msim_input_cb: going to null terminate at
 17:56:07: (Libpurple: msim) msim_input_cb: read=15360

 It reports this error condition using `purple_connection_error_reason`, in

         /* Only can handle so much data at once...
          * Should be large enough to hold the largest protocol message.
         if (session->rxoff >= MSIM_READ_BUF_SIZE) {
                                 "msim_input_cb: %d-byte read buffer full!
 rxoff=%d. "
                                 "If this happens, try recompiling with a
 higher "
                                 MSIM_READ_BUF_SIZE, session->rxoff);
                 purple_connection_error_reason (gc,
                                 _("Read buffer full"));


         if (n + session->rxoff >= MSIM_READ_BUF_SIZE) {
                 purple_debug_info("msim_input_cb", "received %d bytes,
 pushing rxoff to %d, over buffer size of %d\n",
                                 n, n + session->rxoff,
                 /* TODO: g_realloc like msn, yahoo, irc, jabber? */
                 purple_connection_error_reason (gc,
                         _("Read buffer full"));
 There is a `return` missing here; the function shouldn't continue. I added
