I'm running openfire 3.4.4 because 3.4.5 is not in gentoo's portage system yet, but I'm running the most up-to-date version of the Gateway plugin. I am experiencing "flickering" connections to MSN. Intermittently, users' MSN connections will go offline and then come back online dozens of times per minute. When I disabled mail notifications and buddy icons, the issue seems to be resolved. Is this a known issue? I tried searching the forum and couldn't find any reference to it.
Buddy Icon support would be much appreciated by my users, but not at the cost of their connectivity.
