[JDEV] Conference messages cut off at newlines, too

Many moons ago I mentioned that the conference module often cuts off 
chat messages if they contain XML metacharacters like quotes, angle 
brackets, etc. In fact I've had to make my client translate those 
characters into less offensive ones (like curly quotes) on the way out 
to avoid hitting this bug.

Now I found a related problem: Multi-line conference messages often 
appear to get cut off after the first line. (That is, a newline is 
causing message truncation just like the XML metacharacters do.) What's 
weird is that the sender will (about half the time) be echoed the full 
message, but other people in the chat never receive the full message. 
I've looked at the raw XML on both sides to verify this.

This is with the 1.4.1 server on Solaris.
