I've run into the same bug [1.4.1 on Solaris] and I've seen it reported 
once or twice on the list already, but no one's answered.  I really 
don't want to delve into the server sources myself; for the time being 
I've just crudely worked around the problem in my client by replacing 
the XML special characters with innocuous ones, e.g. mapping "<" to "[", 
before sending a message.
