The Microsoft XMPP-bridge servers recently started using a rarely-used
XMPP feature (redirection to another server) which Gabble doesn't
implement yet.

Upstream bug <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51033> has
some work-in-progress.

Workaround: disable the account that uses telepathy-gabble (created via
gnome-online-accounts), and create one that uses telepathy-haze instead
(by adding your Windows Live account via Edit -> Accounts in Empathy).

pkg-telepathy: I wonder whether we should disable gnome-online-accounts
account creation for Windows Live accounts before wheezy freezes, and
revisit them for wheezy+1? So far we've had this, the inability to add
other WLM users in a sensible way, and the inability to respond to being
added by another WLM user in a sensible way - at the moment I think
we're better off using WLM via MSNP + Haze, and I don't expect XMPP +
Gabble to catch up before wheezy, particularly if Microsoft make more
changes to the server.
