Thanks for the link. I see that bug is with low priority and I
understand that this check will be high cost performance. But I have no
idea how to prevent possible DoS attack to my services. Sure I can just
reconnect and don't reinit transport so users will not see reconnect but
this is dangerous too and some stanzas will be lost while reconnection.
So I see the only way to ignore such bad stanzas at all...

Any ideas or suggestions?
