 For about four years now, I've noticed XMPP file transfers generally do
 not work for reasons elusive. Sometimes the sender's end will report
 transfer 100%, while the recipient sees it hanging at some amount less
 than that.

 We are both using Pidgin 2.9.0 (libpurple 2.9.0) on Ubuntu. I am running
 Maverick on amd64 hardware, he is running Natty on amd64 hardware.

 As a test case, my friend and I have captured the necessary debug logs
 attached showing the details of my trying to send him a file which is 72.7
 KB (74442 bytes). My end reports having transferred successfully, but his
 end reports only 37.8 KB (38752 bytes) and then doesn't receive any more.

 There are two logs attached below. One is my debug log (sender), and the
 other is his (recipient).
