Comment (by hjheins):

 This is not the same log as when it said "unknown host".
 However the problem is the same in that sense that in the pidgin debug
 information, I see an unable to connect. However the problem is an expired
 ssl certificate.

 I agree that technically the problem is clearly with ejabberd. However,
 and this is the part I am not sure about: I would expect to get an error
 message about an expired certificate. (as you wrote in your comment).

 I am not sure what creates the unable to connect message in the pidgin
 debug; if it is pidgin, it would be nice to have a better message to at
 least show it is ssl related. But I guess if this is coming directly from
 ejabberd, I should go and file a bug there.

 thank you.
