Hm, maybe they're using trunk then. I'll have a look.

That's strange, as it was even discussed in the MUC and reported  
there. You were even highlighted, IIRC. And I got lots of complaints  
in query, even in a social network in the Gajim group were a lot of  
them and I had to explain how to disable keepalives and all said it  
works much more stable since they disabled it.

If you like, I could forward you some. Many users don't seem to use  
the bug tracker, but complain to developers. When you tell them "File  
a ticket", you usually get only a "later" for an answer.

If my proposed fix doesn't work, we can still release a 0.12.1 without  
a fix for the timeout. But first, I think we should try the proposed  

PS: Could we have a Reply-To:? I was used to just always add gajim-devel at gajim.org 
  to the To: as it's never there, but as you saw lately, that can  
cause quite some confusion (private mail answered publically because  
of that habit etc.)
