The Google Talk Service does not support DIGEST-MD5.

To implement DIGEST-MD5, a server must store the user's password as
plain text or store a specific hash of the user name and password.
DIGEST-MD5 might take some work to implement if a server does not
store passwords in one of these two formats to begin with.
