telepathy-gabble package version is apparently 0.6.2-0osso2

This might be another instance of Loudmouth's intermittent SSL blocking/non-blocking issues.
Simon, any URL/references? Or is there another ticket opened which is worth to track at http://loudmouth.lighthouseapp.com/dashboard ?
Bug #14341 and Bug #15397 might be related; we've found and fixed (or possibly worked around?) others in the past. Senko is the expert on these, I think...
This looks like a Loudmouth problem. Will has written patches that fix this problem for Loudmouth with SSL, but not pushed them upstream yet. This problem will go away in 0.9 when we use Wocky.
