The point is that:

<stream:stream xmlns:stream='http://etherx.jabber.org/streams'>
<message><gajim:die/></message>
</stream>

contains an unbound prefix 'gajim', so MUST be rejected by all XMPP
parsers..  If you want to send xml that looks similar to that, you need to
transmit one of the following:

<stream:stream xmlns:stream='http://etherx.jabber.org/streams' xmlns:gajim='
http://gajim.org/'>
<message><gajim:die/></message>
</stream>

or

<stream:stream xmlns:stream='http://etherx.jabber.org/streams'>
<message xmlns:gajim='http://gajim.org/'><gajim:die/></message>
</stream>

or

<stream:stream xmlns:stream='http://etherx.jabber.org/streams'>
<message><gajim:die xmlns:gajim='http://gajim.org/'/></message>
</stream>

In these examples the gajim prefix has been defined and is therefore
acceptable.
