First issue, MUC join:
- login into gtalk using psi (or any other opensource client supporting MUCs)
- login into a second jabber server  providing MUCs (eg. jabber.org)
and join to a groupchat
- from that groupchat send an invitation to the first contact
- if will receive something like this, where the original invitation
payload has been stripped out

<message from="yyyy at conference.jabber.org" type="chat" to="xxxx at gmail.com" >
Click here to join:

- Instead if you are logged in inside gmail, you just receive this "
xxx at jabber.bluendo.com/olindo invites you to the room
yyyy at conference.jabber.org""", with nothing clickable

Second bad behavior (also related to transports):
- login into a gtalk account using psi
- add a contact without the username part (e.g. fireeagle.com), which
is how usual transports are added (eg. msn.jabber.net)
- the server ignores the request
- try it with any other jabber server and it works
