Comment (by xnyhps):

 I've emailed the jdev and security mailing lists at jabber.org. See

 Seeing the observed behavior from these broken servers, I think it would
 be a valid workaround for libpurple to consider iqs from:

 * The bare domain JID
 * The full JID of Pidgin

 to be legal when expecting an iq reply with either the user's bare JID or
 no 'to'. As far as I can tell, that should have no security implications
 and would fix the problems we've seen so far.
