Comment(by jricesterenator):

 I think I've identified a control character/bytes that starts each user
 section. This would let us conditionally fix for new-style messages.

 I'd like to confirm that someone else is getting what I'm getting. Can you
 put this code at the very top of your recv_SECTION_LIST() method and
 initiate some group chats? It'll dump the message in hex to the command
 printf("Dumping incoming group chat invite:\n");
 while(mwGetBuffer_remaining(b)) {

     guint16 val = 0;
     guint16_get(b, &val);

     printf("%04x ", val);

 If you launch Adium from the command line you should see the output,
 that's how it works with Pidgin at least. Or maybe you need to enable
 debug logging and check the debug file.

 Note that this logging will prevent group chat from actually working.

 dm me on Twitter for my email address, I'd like to see your messages. See
 previously attached "grpinvite" if you're curious what'll be in that
 message (pretty much just your name).
