once we connected 30 instances of the same account to jabberd, it even 
caused a storm of presence packet bouncing among these connections and 
cause the jabberd stopped to response. ( no connections will be accept 
on 5222)
So i believe there is a bug in jabberd 1.4.2.

we are running it on a Jabberd-1.4.2 windows server.
