Yeah; mine broke. I'm using testing, btw, and my experiences were very
consistent with what's been described in this thread. People would ask
for auth, and then I wouldn't see any messages from them. They later
complained that I never replied to their messages =\
I'm happily using the MSN end of EveryBuddy to talk to those people,
which is kind of perverse, I suppose. I'm hoping that this Mirabilis
idiocy is patched in our clients soon. I've read somewhere that the
change was made at least partly to allow adverts in the 'doze client.
Maybe someone can verify/debunk that?
