 Replying to [comment:5 chaddimmack]:
 > I may not be understanding correctly, but I believe I'm using OpenDNS as
 my DNS not my router. Also my error didn't occur in v 2.6.3 (and still
 doesn't on my laptop that still has 2.6.3), but is occurring in v 2.6.5
 the faq says the change occurred in 2.5.2 so well before my problem

 Whatever the upstream reason is, the root cause is that your DNS is broken
 in regard to SRV lookups:
 (13:42:51) dnssrv: querying SRV record for gmail.com: _xmpp-
 (13:42:51) dnssrv: Couldn't look up SRV record. Bad DNS packet. (9502).
