The Gabber side of this bug *should* be fixed in CVS now. Jabberoo was 
looping (not crashing!) in the parser_error function. It knew there was 
an error, the code for what to do when there was had a bug, though. 
However, the rest of this bug does not lie in Gabber. You server people 
need to fix that ;)
