Looks like things are getting ugly.  Neither 0.9.10 nor 0.9.11 are
working for me.  Same symptoms (connects, waits a second and
disconnects from AIM-T).  At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if
they have someone directly tracking your changes :-(.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to get you better info on
what's going on from my server's point of view.  I'm currently running
jabberd with the -D option, and the error.log entries are identical to
the last time I reported on this.

Checked: my IP address gets through fine.

Just an observation: I don't think they can block *all* jabber IP
addresses, because with dynamic DNS, jabberd can run on DHCP addresses
amidst people using the official client.  Therefore, the closer AIM-T
can mimic the behavior of the current version of their official
client, the harder it will be for them to break AIM-T connections
without breaking their own client's connections.
