 I tried to start a file transfer via XMPP. First it seems to work, Pidgins
 transfer window opens and the status is "waiting for transfer to start"
 and remains as that (I'm using the german translation, maybe the original
 english text is different...) The file transfer does not start, nor is
 there any error message/window.

 Because I'm behind a NAT-router I use proxy.jabber.org:7777 as a proxy for
 file transfers.

 This proxy Server seems to be down for now:

 ~$ telnet proxy.jabber.org 7777
 telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

 But Pidgin doesnt tell me, the transfer window is still open and nothing
 happened so far. The receiver gets no message as well. I opened the debug
 window, it seems pidgin detects that there is some problem. but why does
 that get ignored?
