Ah, so I was actually talking to myself. That'd explain things. :-)

I did a service discovery on sapo.pt, since I figured it probably had  
proper certificates etc, and I'd have connected to each listed  

  <iq from='sapo.pt' to='dwd at dave.cridland.net/Gajim' type='result'  
  <query xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#items'>
  <item jid='admin.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='alertas.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='conference.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='icq.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='msn.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='passatempos.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='phone.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='proxy.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='services.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='sms.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='stats.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='utils.im.sapo.pt'/>
  <item jid='webmsg.im.sapo.pt'/>

I should probably get the code not to connect to itself, of course.
