After the updates in the recent past to gnutls and glib-networking, Mcabber (0.10.1-1) is broken. Upon trying to connect to a server, a "3->'LM_DISCONNECT_REASON'" is thrown. Downgrading gnutls (3.0.2-1 to 2.12.7-2) and glib-networking (2.28.7-4 to -1) fixes the issue. I'm not entirely sure the glib-networking downgrade was needed but I tried it anyway. I may try updating that and see if it affects Mcabber any.

Steps to reproduce:
Install mcabber and the latest gnutls (and perhaps glib-networking, again I'm not sure it's part of the problem)
Try to connect to an XMPP server.
Watch it fail :\

Steps to fix appear to be:
Downgrade gnutls from the ARM, and watch Mcabber work.
This task depends upon

OK, as I should have guessed by it being a PKGREL rollback anyway, glib-networking has nothing to do with this, and seems to purely be GNUtls.

Does it fail for all servers with tls you are trying to connect to? Is it related to  FS#23678 ?

Also, does it work with gnutls built against this patch?

I applied the patch to gnutls 3.0.2, the error still persists.
Note that I tried connecting to Connecting to with tls is successful.

May be, mantainers could make package mcabber with --with-ssl="openssl" while problem with gnutls not solved. There is PKGBUILD in AUR with openssl for mcabber?
