Maybe download one of the open-source servers and test things out 
locally before you try to run your software against a live service such 
as Google Talk? Also, Google Talk has some quirks. You might want to 
test things with, say, the jabber.org service first.

What did you send before you received that?

It seems to me that perhaps you sent this:

   <iq type="get">
     <query xmlns="jabber:iq:auth"/>

The server may not be happy that you tried to send the <iq/> before you 
received the response stream header.
