 This is actually not caused directly a bug in our code as such (which is
 why Pidgin isn't in the list of buggy clients in the issue you linked to).

 The only reason that we'd ever send an IQ stanza without a id specified is
 when we're responding to a IQ "get" that didn't have an id specified.
 Perhaps we should just be dropping those and not replying with another
 broken stanza, but the real problems are:
  * another client is sending the broken "get" that we're responding to
  * the server is allowing bogus packets to be sent to us

 If you read the forum linked to the ticket you posted, you'll find similar
 sentiments posted there.

 I'm not sure there is anything we should be doing differently here.
