Problem authenticating when password contains comma

BitlBee seems to be unable to authenticate against the Google Talk IM servers when my password contains a "," (comma). After removing it, logging went okay, whereas it would systematically reject me before. It was the only special character in my password.

I guess the problem might exists with other protocols, though I didn't took the time to verify this.

This has been tested with (Host is running BitlBee 3.0.1 Linux/i686.)

Hrmm, I can't reproduce that. I changed my GMail password to sometihng with a , and could log in successfully. You still have this problem if you change your password back to what it was?

After setting it back to something with a comma, it worked. Sorry for the noise, must have been a problem on the GMail's side.
