I think a lot of problems have been caused by dialback.  I don't know
where jabberd 1.4 is at with this now but it used to have a few bugs.
Though I haven't had any problems with jabberd 2.0s8 (in fact I've had
no problems since December with 2.0s6 + patches).  Though if the default
config doesn't work for you there are some tweaks that can be made in
the server config.  This may be necessary for some conditions such as
where a stateful firewall is involved.

Other than that, I don't know what's with jabber.org.  It seems to have
issues of various sorts, no matter what I do to to tweak the config on
my servers.  So I just suggest to people to use a local server.
