#522 closed defect (worksforme)

Google Talk password with @ in it not accepted

Reported by: jochem.meyers@… Owned by: wilmer
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Jabber Version: 1.2.3
Keywords: password character @ Cc:
IRC client+version: Client-independent Operating System: Linux
OS version/distro: Debian


When trying to add a google talk jabber account with an @ sign in the password, root gives me this:

Logging in: Connecting

Login error: Unable to connect

Signing off..

After changing the password to something not containing an @ sign, signing in worked.

I haven't tested this with any other accounts. This used to work fine in 1.2, but has been broken since I upgraded to 1.2.3

Did this seriously break between 1.2 and 1.2.3, or could it have been 1.0 to 1.2.3? Because I can't figure out which change could be responsible for this, 1.2->1.2.3 has very little changes to the Jabber module..

I'm pretty sure, yeah. My girlfriend is the one with the problem, and she started complaining about gtalk not logging in anymore after I upgraded to 1.2.3. I could of course be mistaken...

Digging through old tickets I just found this one again.

I just added an @ to my GTalk password and I can still log in.. If you can still reproduce this, can you test this with some bogus password and send me xmlconsole logs?
