FYI, a message that David Recordon, head of Facebook's open source team,
sent me:

Begin forwarded message:

> We're going to be rolling out an opt-in security feature which if
> enabled will break the current Facebook sign in within Adium. If users
> run into it, best bet will be to have them re-add their Facebook Chat
> account manually selecting Jabber. Their Jabber ID
> is username at chat.facebook.com <mailto:username at chat.facebook.com>. As
> it's opt-in, I think it's worth documenting in a FAQ in terms of how
> to connect to Facebook Chat via Jabber, but hopefully won't be too big
> of an issue.
