Package: sendxmpp
Version: 0.0.8+cvs20061115-1
Severity: important

Hash: SHA1

The man page claims:

	# account with specific connection host
	alice at; secret

However, using that syntax makes sendxmpp barf:

	syntax error in line 2 of /home/kas/.sendxmpprc

Line 146 of the sendxmpp perl script reads

	if (/([-\.\w]+)@([-\.\w:]+)\s+(\S+)\s*$/) {

showing that no attempt is made at extracting a specific connection 
host.  This bug makes it impossible to use the config file if the 
jabber server is different from the left-hand side of the JID, thus 
affecting all "Google Apps for Your Domain" users, who all have er their connection host.

The bug is true even for sendxmpp v1.13.
