It looks from that like no stanzas have been sent over the stream for
ten minutes, so the server's sent a ping to check that the client is
still there. The client then seems to ignore the ping stanza, so the
server believes the connection has failed, and closes it.

If this is true, Telepathy needs a patch - replying to all iq stanzas
(even unknown ones like ping for Telepathy) is a requirement of XMPP.
