#16576: Handling Google Talk addresses for non @gmail.com accounts

     Type:  defect                  |     Status:  new
Milestone:  Patches Needing Review  |  Component:  Google Talk
  Version:  2.10.11                 |   Keywords:
 I have a google account which is not ending with @gmail.com (I use my own
 email server), and is not registered with google's domain business (called
 Google Apps).

 For this accounts to work, we have to send an extra ga:allow-generated-jid
 besides the usual ga:client-uses-full-bind-result setting.

 This is not too well documented, but if one googles for it, it can be seen
 that e.g. the chromium guys had to add this too for handling chromium

 Since this is a namespaced, google-only setting and we already have
 client-uses-full-bind-result which is non-standard, I would like to ask to
 apply the attached patch to fix this issue.

 I've tested that the patch causes no issues for connecting to other jabber
   - google talk with @gmail.com address
   - facebook xmpp
   - jabber.org user

 After this patch is applied, I can successfully log in with a non
 @gmail.com account using the following settings:
   - username: email username before at-sign
   - domain: email domain after at-sign
   - password: google password
   - port: 5222
   - server: talk.google.com
