1. Attempt to log into google talk
2. Error message: "gabble/connection-DEBUG: 22/09/11 14:55:26.505064:
connector_error_disconnect (connection.c:1673): connection failed:
g-resolver-error-quark (#1): connection failed: Error resolving
'talk.google.com': Temporary failure in name resolution" 
3. See the error message  "Disconnected - No reason specified" as shown in the

This is with gabble 0.12.0 on meego (we're going to try upgrading to the latest
and retest) and the meego branch of empathy 2.30.

Looking at MC logs we have:

mcd-DEBUG: 22/09/11 15:24:28.707423: mcd_connection_invalidated_cb: Proxy destroyed (g-resolver-error-quark (#1): connection failed: Error resolving 'talk.google.com': Temporary failure in name resolution)!

mcd-DEBUG: 22/09/11 15:24:28.707564: _mcd_account_set_connection_status: changing connection status reason from 1 to 0

So Gabble uses None_Specified.

Yup, a quick local test (by setting 'server': 'lololol') confirms that this is the case:

signal sender=:1.64 -> dest=(null destination) serial=8133 path=/org/freedesktop/Telepathy/Connection/gabble/jabber/resiak_40topsecrettestserver_2eorg_2fQueeg; interface=org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection; member=ConnectionError
   string "org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Error.NotAvailable"
   array [
      dict entry(
         string "debug-message"
         variant             string "g-resolver-error-quark (#0): connection failed: Error resolving 'lolololol': Name or service not known"
signal sender=:1.64 -> dest=(null destination) serial=8134 path=/org/freedesktop/Telepathy/Connection/gabble/jabber/resiak_40topsecrettestserver_2eorg_2fQueeg; interface=org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection; member=StatusChanged
