[JDEV] Conference messages cut off

Just for FWIW, I am having the same exact problem with Jabber 1.4.1
using Conference 0.4.1 on a Solaris 2.7 box.  Like the original poster,
I had no problems on a Linux box (Redhat 7.x), and most of my open-source
libs on the Solaris box came from sunfreeware.com.

I am also  getting conference messages truncated, often at the first byte
of a one-liner. Using JabberIM I will type something like:

	I see this problem too, looks like it is a bug in the server?

And what the participants see and what I get echoed back is just:


Has anybody seen this exact behavior? Any suggestions for a fix?

This is running Jabber-1.4.1 on a Solaris 8 server. I had been running on
a FreeBSD system and _never_ saw this bug, then I copied the source code
over to Solaris, recompiled, and now I have this annoying problem!

After migration I went from having 1-3 users in a conference to 8-20 users,
so at first I thought it was related to the increased number of
but it could just be a Solaris issue.
