 I'm back...

 I see I'm still unable to connect to multiple GroupWise systems with the
 same user ID.  Last we left it was my willingness to test, or otherwise
 get some info about how to develop a patch.  As your mentioned, simply
 identifying the GroupWise account like XMPP does would likely remedy this



 Replying to [comment:8 deryni]:
 > The alias isn't because the server doesn't know anything about it and
 you can change it whenever you want, it isn't a uniquely identifying piece
 of information. Incoming data from the server will never make reference to
 your local alias and as such pidgin can't use it to match against, etc.
 > For local differentiation the local alias can work just fine (though
 people often use the same local alias for all their accounts, something
 like 'Me' or what-have-you) but that's not the 'problem' we need the
 unique information to 'solve'.
