Windows Live XMPP: connection error
Last modified: 2012-06-30 17:49:55 EDT
Description of problem:
can't connect to Windows Live XMPP.
Should be related to «XMPP: Upcoming Breaking Change to Messenger XMPP Service» in http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/messengerconnect/thread/5a0ca19f-46d5-4c23-9921-8b032d562c2e .
Citation: "Starting with the March 2012 release, all XMPP apps connecting to xmpp.messenger.live.com must handle the defined stream error condition "see-other-host" "

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create account *using Gnome's Online Accounts*
2. enable chat on created account (on by default)
3. open Empathy, wait for it to attempt to connect
"Connection error" message; logs on "Additional info".
Connection successful, loads contacts.

Workaround to use Windows Live [for anyone else reading and wanting to use Windows Live]:
use Pidgin or use Empathy to add the account without using "online-accounts"; such will use libpurple with old Windows Live protocol which works.
Will discuss it further in https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45915 .
Error occurs 95% of the times, I was able to connect three times now without understanding what changed.
Bug above is another issue. Bug added on "External Trackers" is correct one.
