[JDEV] Karma and transferring large XML message packets...

That is not a karma problem..

your karma settings are rather high, and would not interfere with a data chunk that size..
(incidentally, you can "turn off" karma all together by just setting <dec>0</dec>)

most likely, if you are SURE that you do not have bad XML, and all of your tags are UTF-8 
encoded.. you are hitting an internal node size limit.. which I thought was somewhere around
500K bytes, but that might have been changed somewhere along the line... I can't look into
it right now, but I'll take a look, and see if I can find out what the max node size is
now adays.. =]

Happy Hunting!

In addition to normal chat messaging, we are using Jabber messaging to transfer large amounts of XML data (using an 'x' namespace) between Jabber users. The 'x' XML data will probably be in the 30K - 300K range. I am able to send a 6K packet without any trouble, the packet I am having trouble with is 60K.
