 and see if there's anything obvious during the login that identifies
 server version...

 In your tests, what's the difference between "older client" and "older
 adium user"?

 It probably makes sense that the older clients are blowing up in your
 tests. I imagine that the client sends an invite request to the server,
 and /it/ sends the official (new-style) request to the client.

 We could sorta write a dynamic test case for old-style messages by
 intercepting the new-style message and stripping out the new field.
