[JDEV] Conference messages cut off at newlines, too

I noticed very similar behavior when sending a message to an offline contact
using the 1.4.1 code on a Solaris 7 machine.
However, the same exact code
on a linux box (redhat 6.2), does NOT show this behavior.
I was forced to conclude that either something went awry during the
compilation process under solaris, or one of the open-source libraries I
installed (from www.sunfreeware.com) was responsible for this bug.
Actually, even more likely, one of the utilities from sun is responsible for
this behavior. Either way, I could not duplicate the problem under Linux.
I know this info might not help you get it running under solaris, but at
least you wont have to be overly confused if other people tell you they
can't duplicate the problem.

Subject: [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.
