Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

The ridiculous decision of GMail to use XML namespace prefixes here broke this. BitlBee was totally unaware of how to handle them (the GLib XML parser has no clue about them and nor did I back when I wrote this code).

I added just enough code to handle this case. I've hardly ever seen this stuff used in XMPP; the fact that it took almost four years for a problem to appear says it all IMHO.

changeset:devel,576. Thanks a lot for your report.
