#212 closed defect (fixed)

BitlBee cannot connect to google talk when the password is too long.

I tried to connect to Google Talk using BitlBee, but it didnt work until i changed my password so that it was shorter (i like long passwords). I got "error 403", when trying to login.

I dont know if thats a bitlbee-bug, but trying it permanently made bitlbee crashing with "signal 11" or something.

How long is your long password exactly? There's some limit, but it should be around 30 characters. In the development code there shouldn't be a limit like this anymore BTW, IIRC.

Its 33 chars long. Thats more than 30 (but i am a paranoid when its about passwords).

Please try the BitlBee version with the new Jabber module. It shouldn't have this problem. See (use bzr to download it or use /hgweb/ to generate a tarball).
