Replying to anonymous:

Same issue here.

Ditto. I have a YIM connection still up but new connections all get that error message.

Come on people, learn to use a bug tracker.

And for this stuff: I don't know how well the obfuscation in the old auth. mechanism worked but if it's based on a proper irreversible hash (and AFAIK it is) with a challenge there's little abuse one could perform using the alternative server. Even replays won't work anymore since none of the Yahoo! servers will give a useful session using that mechanism anymore.
