[JDEV] CDATA in messages

I just had a discussion about xml over jabber..

I typed something like this:

	<![[CDATA[ hello ]]>

but my peer recieved 


So the CDATA tag was interpreted somewhere in the
message chain: Exodus <-> jabberd <-> Gabber.

Repeating the test while the recipient was offline, resulted in
a message with <body> hello </body> beeing stored in the jabberd spool

Either jabberd or the clients are broken I guess. 
But the clients does encode regular tags correctly. I dont understand
why a CDATA tag should be trated differently.
